Just one more Christmas post before I move on to other things. It has become a tradition for me to make our kids new Christmas pajamas every year. I love having the kids in matching pjs on Christmas morning, and since my kids range in age from almost 20 to 2, I really have no choice, but to make them! I used several different patterns this year, some of my own and some purchased.
For my youngest two boys, I used my Patrick Curved Raglan top. I did modify Jamie’s to add cuffs to the arms. For Jamie’s pants, I used my AJ Bottoms pattern with cuffs added the same way I did the shirt. Allen’s and Samantha’s pants were both just traced from a ready-to-wear pair of PJ pants. (Knit pajama pants are very forgiving and tracing a pair that you know fits well works great!) Samantha’s top is my Emmy pattern which is her favorite.
For Morgan and Sean, I used Kwik Sew 3144. Morgan asked for a long nightshirt, and Sean wanted the v-neck style top. (I did modify the top a bit to make it more masculine for Sean. I just made the sleeves a little wider and longer and squared off the bottom and hemmed it.)
I always try to get the tops done as early as possible so the kids can get as much wear as possible out of them. They wear them with jeans to Christmas parties, get-togethers and, of course, to visit with Santa.
