It's always interesting to sew clothing for someone else. Doubly so when that someone lives halfway around the world, has no chance to try the clothes on mid-making, and you're only partially sure of what dress size she is to begin with. Therefore, I was terribly relieved when my sister told me her birthday present actually fit!
The present in question is a set of Lakeside Pajamas made from a Grainline Studios pattern. This pattern is pretty adorable and I can't decide what I like more: the back of the top or the gym-short look of the shorts. Either way, comfortable and adorable is a winning combination.
I actually made these out of an old sheet and thought the floral would be perfect for my sister who lives in Hawaii. The next time I make this pattern (and I definitely will because I want a set), I'd be okay with using sheets again but I'll likely go for something less flowery. Flowery prints don't quite work the same when you live in Wisconsin.
