On Mondays, We Wear Pajamas




My third installment in the Watcha Wearin’ January blog tour is all about quiet Mondays.

Mondays are my jam!  I just love Mondays; can that be our secret?  After the weekend, with kids home from school and all the running around that weekends bring, Mondays feel like a relief.  My Little Bear is in pre-school and they don’t have school on Mondays.  So, once Bug is off to school, it is just a day for us to get it together for the rest of the week.  I can get stuff done around the house, sewing projects, snuggle time on the couch; all the good stuff.  And, often, Bear and I spend that day in pajamas!  Unless we leave the house; I’m not a member of the pajamas outside the house club (except Pajama Day at school!), but you do you, is what I always say!

I’ve been desperate for these thick, plushy soft pajama pants for almost a year.  I bought the Robert Kaufman Mammoth Plaid flannel from Raspberry Creek Fabrics (also, check out the Raspberry Creek Facebook Group) last year; too close to the end of winter to get them done.  But the fabric was pre-washed and ready to go on my shelf from the week I got it.  Sometimes, I would stop and pet it and sniff it.  Is that weird?  Surely not.  Isn’t that a thing?

The pattern I used is the Peekaboo Pattern Shop Hit the Hay pajama pants.  I have made six pair of these pajama pants as gifts, but never for myself! Thanks to Watcha Wearin’ January for finally giving me my turn!  {sorry for the blurry photo – I struggled to get these due to lighting issues!}  They are perfect, comfy lounge/pajama pants!  I made them slightly long because I thought I would like them that way, but I think I’m going to hem them an extra inch.  They impede my walking a bit and it gets annoying.

The shirt, a Patterns for Pirates Relaxed Raglan, is made from some nubby french terry from Sew Vagabond Fabric Shop.  SV has had a number of french terry and double brushed poly pre-sales lately, take a look and try to get in on the discounted pre-sale price!

I made the unhemmed, tunic length option of the Relaxed Raglan, annnd I used the off-the-shoulder neckline tutorial featured on the Patterns for Pirates blog and written by the lovely Alex Radu.  I wanted the option to wear this without the pajama pants for a little bit of sassy- as opposed to my standard, old, oversized t-shirt.  I may wear pajama pants during the day on Mondays, but not to sleep in – too hot for me!
