Any idea on how to add a collar to the sleep over pajamas?

    My daughter asked for pajamas with buttons and a collar. Does it make sense to adjust the sleepover pattern and add a collar, or maybe combine it with a top from another pattern? Would love to hear your ideas!

    Thank you,

    Tali

    I made this shirt for my daughter http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/7948860068/in/photostream/

    I used the Sketchbook shirt collar and sandwiched it between the facing.

    @Nicole and any others, I am going for this look:

    Could I do as you did above and maybe just square off the neckline a little more? (See how on your daughter’s shirt the ‘points’ are a little more rounded)?

    I bought a big 4 pattern for that style of pyjama and wound up nearly crying from frustration. I wish I had just made it my own way. Aside from the instructions, the fit/styling was also pretty awful.

    Oh my, so cute!

    I would use the Music Class collar and the top yoke to make to front.
    Trixie is crying but I will come back and explain further

    Very Heath Robinson of me, but I would lay the Music Class front yoke over the Sleepover front. I would place tracing paper over that then re-draft the front with the centre front of then new pattern piece finishing the same width as the Sleepover.
    Then I would re-draft the neck of the front facing to match the new neck line, but attach the facings to the inside.
    (Alternatively, many vintage patterns have the facing cut as an extension on the front piece, in this case, don’t forget to deduct the seam allowances).

    I hope this is some help Sarvi.
