This series will show you how to make snuggly pajamas for your little ones this winter in the Southern Hemisphere!
Lets start with the Zoo PJ Top
For my sons version I ran out of fabric so instead of fully lining the shirt I made facings. It is very easy and heres how I did it.
Step 1 – Take the front Zoo pattern piece and trace the shirt length line and blue line in the size you are making.
Step 2: Using this pattern piece you are going to measure the front snap placket front and use this as the snap placket facing. Width around 2″ or 6cm. (you will cut 2 of the placket facings mirrored)
Step 3: Place on a piece of paper and trace the neckline. width of 2″ for the neckline facing. (You will cut 1 of the back neckline facing)
Voila – Your facing pattern is done. This can be applied to any garment that requires a lining for example a coat, dress bodice etc.
Follow for my next Blogpost on sewing the PJ top together using this facing.
“IMPORTANT: Most nations have strict regulations surrounding children’s sleepwear – in order to sell it, it must meet certain fire resistant standards, in both fabric content and construction/fit. Please do not sell anything you make from this pattern without first checking to see that you have adhered to those regulations. Even for personal use, it is a good idea to be aware of the standards and choose your fabric/fit accordingly. (snug fit is important if not using flame retardant fabric, per most government regulations)”
