I had such a good day today, doing something that I have not done in ages.
Today, I sewed.
A few days ago I went to Kmart and found some Joe Boxer pajamas on clearance for $1.99. I decided to buy three sets, but since I live in sunny (usually) Florida, and because they were extra large sizes, I knew that I would have to alter them a bit.
Today I didn't have to work, so I got right down to business.
Here is a photo of the pajama bottoms. A little big don't you think?
(added photo again after it was deleted somehow)
I got out the iron, and pinned the hem in place.
It felt so great to try them on and see how well they fit. Ta - Da !!
I had a few options for making a top, but I really couldn't decide what I wanted to do, and I wasn't ready to cut into that remaining checkered fabric. After looking through my sewing box, I came across this black turtle neck that had been in the closet for years.
I know it looks like my shorts are uneven, but they must have been bunched up. whoops !
I cut off the sleeves and used the bottom cuffs of the bottoms to add a little trim.
I got rid of that turtle neck and did a quick blind stitch around the neck line.
I also took the shoulder seam down a few inches.
Loving my new lounge wear !
I have a lot of material left to play with, so stay tuned.
