TBT: Sorbetto Top Nightie Set

Aug 7, 2014 | Other | 2 comments

Hi All!

Today for throwback thursday I have a little sleep set I made for my sister a couple years ago.

The top is the free Sorbetto top pattern, and the bottoms were a pair of pj shorts that I cloned.

 Super comfy, super simple, super sweet!

I made it out of this soft thin cotton seersucker fabric, and made a small self binding to finish the armholes and the neckline.

And for the bottoms I just added about 6 inches of width on each side, then did an elasticated waist and little elastic on the bottom to gather and give the poofy effect! I thought they were so cute! It’s also important to measure the elastic around your leg and make sure it isn’t tight, because there is nothing more uncomfortable than a tight elastic around your leg when you’re trying to sleep!

The bottom edge is just finished with a simple serge

 These are so perfect for the hot summer- and I have to say, my sister never really wore them so I stole them back and have been wearing them myself!

And of course you have to finish with a cute little bow with the leftover bias binding 🙂 

This was a SUPER SIMPLE project, and a perfect present for someone too. I love making pjs! 
Do you love making pjs too?
Hope you’re having a great Thursday!

    These are super cute! Is that your new place? Methinks it needs a little colour on the wall!
