Thank you for leaving over 100 comments on my last blog post about our upcoming pyjama pant pattern. Your preferences included all of the options that I listed so I’ve decided to include variations for no fly, a mock fly and a button fly so as to please everyone! After all, as many of you pointed out, what is stopping me from including them all? I think that’s a good point because this will allow sewists to start with this pattern as their first garment project (by sewing the no fly variation) but then re-use the pattern over and over as they develop their skills (by progressing to the mock fly and finally the button fly).
And, to calm the fears of those who worried – there will be no zipper on the fly of these PJ pants! That would be a tad strange! The fly will be a single button fly as is commonly seen on sleepwear.
Since completing the first sample for our pyjama pant pattern I have sewn three more garments to determine the fit for our other upcoming patterns! I’ve been at my machine sewing for hours every work day this week and it has been such a nice change from my usual work on the computer. Here is a little peek at some of my work:
Next week I will sew up the final (5th) design and then the patterns will be tweaked and graded. Then it is back to the computer with a vengeance to develop the instruction booklets!
Anyhow, thanks for your interest in our upcoming patterns and for your feedback about the pyjama pants! I hope you enjoy our SEWFORLOVE sale and make something that your loved one wears proudly this Valentine’s Day.
