While I’d love for everything around here to be charcoal linen and nani iro polka dots, the fact is that I’ve got really opinionated kids. And their opinion is that rainbow stretch knit is the bestest thing evar. So, in an effort to get them to actually wear what I make, I’ve compromised my beliefs. (And, let’s be honest, I don’t hate this fabric. Exhibit A: our blog header.)
So, with that in mind, I’ve created the worlds’ most obnoxious pajamas*
They’re bright. They’re striped. They’re orange. They’re good for jumping.
The tank is this free Ottobre pattern, the shorts are something I (obviously) made up as I went. Sewing with rib knit is soooo not my favorite. Need to invest in some orange jersey.
I can’t believe the last time I made jammies and did a bed jumping post was over two years ago. Crazy. This needs to be an annual event at the very least. Anybody want to join in on a Make-Your-Kids-Pajamas-And-Then-Photograph-Them-Jumping-On-The-Bed event? We could come up with a catchier title.
ps: some of you are sick of hearing this, but I can’t stress enough that I had nothing to do with the choosing of my furniture, including that headboard. It was chosen and provided for me while we live overseas, and I am grateful for it. Though in the future I hope they let a woman pick it out. A woman with the gift of sight.
