A few of you who sewed along with me have submitted your finished Eastwood Pajamas for today’s parade…and there is a definite theme going on: Linen and shorts for summer!
Nick sewed these striped linen pajamas with cotton cording. What a perfect color match he managed with that cording! He reports (by email) that next time he sews with this style of linen he will try out french seams since the linen frays so much. This would be a lovely way to finish the inseams and side seams when sewing with very light weight fabrics. Heavier fabrics could benefit from bound seam allowances if you have the patience!
Liz sewed this pair of white linen Eastwood shorts for her husband and reports that her son is now waiting for her to sew some for him! It looks like she did a lovely job of that fly topstitching.
Lastly, Susanne was able to use up a small scrap of Dr. Who fabric that she treasured to make her son some tardis boxers! They used only 34″ of a narrow 45″ fabric that she found on Spoonflower. She reports that she made a size medium and cut a 6″ inseam plus hem allowance.
These three busy sewists will be receiving our upcoming pattern release for free as a thank you for sewing along with me these last couple of weeks! I’m finishing up the instructions today and will hopefully submit them to our graphic designer (my sister-in-law) this evening. I’m really excited for this pattern…actually, it is two patterns that we will be releasing at once (but that’s the only hint I’ll give).
