The final outfit from our Sewing For Kindergarten mini wardrobe is these pajamas. I’m not sure why a simple pair of pajamas was so fun to make, but this ended up being one of my favorite pieces from the wardrobe. This outfit was actually the fastest sew of the whole group. Maybe it was because the photo shoot was so fun.
When I made the shirt for the pajamas, I intended that David would wear it with all or any of the other clothes in the mini wardrobe, and boy does he ever wear this shirt! I used the Field Trip raglan t-shirt pattern by Oliver + S, and the only change I made was to widen the neckband. This is my usual change to this pattern as I found the original neckband tended to fold over after wear.
David spent a long time choosing which of the constellations to have featured on the pocket. He didn’t know what each of the animals were, but after I showed him some photos, he decided the bobcat was the one! It’s really fun to use the pocket as an accent feature because of the cute rounded pocket shape.
The pajama pants are Made Everyday’s Kid Shorts pattern and I was so glad I had enough fabric to lengthen them to pants. That will make them more suitable for fall and winter sleeping.
I added a little piece of tractor ribbon to the back of the pajama pants so David can tell which is the front and back of them.

As I mentioned before, this photo shoot was a very fun one! In the afternoons, the lighting is just perfect across the bed where my oldest son sleeps. I made him this stunning quilt from his old jeans, and you can read more about the whole thing here.
The combination of the quilt, the pajamas, and a 5 year old alternating between trying to pretend he was sleeping and trying to play the harmonica as he was jumping on the bed made for a super fun photo shoot.
What simple thing have you made lately that pleased you greatly?
