It has been so hot and humid in Western NY, (I'm not complaining, just explaining) and I decided I needed some cool pj's. I visited Marshall's and saw some I like but decided that because I have so much fabric currently in my stash, I needed to use it rather than spend my money on RTW. I trotted my happy self home and pulled out this lightweight stripped knit and begin sewing. I used McCall's 6658, the shorts and sleeveless tank views for my pj's. I had some lingerie elastic in a an aqua blue that I used to trim the the armholes and neckline of the top and I also cut the top wider in the waist and hips in a sort of swing style. I really love the way they came out. I only wish I had made the top a little more swing than I did, nevertheless, still like them a great deal. I also made a kimono style robe of the same fabric using OOP New Look 6312.
I really love it when an idea I had in my brain comes together so nicely. This new addition should wear well on my upcoming trip to California.
