    Adorable pj's with lots of room to grow
    Reviewed by on 08/01/2015
    The Sleepover pajamas were so much fun to sew, with great, detailed instructions and lots of fun little details. I really loved the cuffs in the sleeves and pants and the length of the shirt, which will allow these pj's to last a long time.
    I made them in flannel which was deliciously cozy, and I think quilting cotton would be great for the warmer months.

    I just finished 2 pair of these pajamas for my grandchildren. They love them as much as I enjoyed sewing them. Excellent instructions! So nice to print out multiple patterns...This pattern will be good for another six years and won't take up any space in my sewing studio.

    Having 4 children I love how having a digital copy means I can have multiple sizes of the same pattern! Thank you for the prompts within the pattern on when to finish the inner seams so I don't have to lose the notches ahead of time by finishing all the edges or waste time on edges that won't be exposed on the finished garment. The PJs fit well on my kids with varying body types.

    Great Digital Pattern Experience
    Reviewed by on 12/10/2014
    I have used downloadable patterns from some of the major pattern manufacturers with only mildly satisfactory results. From the classic styling, exceptionally readable directions to the digital output and how the pieces register with each other, this was the best ever experience for me.

    This is my first choice for making all kinds of pants for my grandsons. Pajama pants in winter and then I adapt them for shorts in the summer. The best part is that there are no side seams so I can use large prints without ruining the design with a seam. I lengthen the and don't use the cuff but can add it when the pants get too short. I like the way the waistband connects to the pants and often sew it on the outside with contrasting material.

    I have only made these for one of my daughters but can't wait to make them for my son this winter. They are really cozy in flannel and fun to sew.

  • Errata

    1. In the first printing of the paper version of this pattern, the notch at the side seam on piece #2, the Pajama Top - Back was incorrectly positioned for all sizes. Please refer to the side seam notch on piece #1, the Pajama Top - Front, for the correct notch placement. This issue has been corrected in the digital version of the pattern.
    2. In the first printing of the paper version of the pattern, for the 6-12M and 12-18M sizes the pocket placement on the pajama top is a bit too low and will interfere with the hem of the top. To avoid this problem, raise the pocket placement by 1/2" for the 6-12M size and by 1/4" for the 12-18M size. This issue has been corrected in the digital version of the pattern.

     

     

    Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern.

    To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.
