oliver + s bedtime story pajamas!

Well as most of you know i have spend a good part of a couple of days trying to make these gorgeous pyjamas!! As per usual it took me longer than i first thought, basically because i am so VERY new to sewing and i find tracing and cutting the pattern takes ages too!!

So here is a pic of the pattern i bought, its so cute!! I bought on the recommendation of a few lovely ladies. You can check out another blog with these pj's here!

And here is Eleisha modeling the finished product!! They are a little too big ( i made her a size 4 which is her size so i do think this pattern is a little larger if you are planning on making them!). I still have 2 more pairs to make for my other girls so hopefully it will mean i will get quicker at making them by the end of it all! Eleisha chose this fabric, i wasn't too sure on it but she was adamant that it was what she wanted for her pj's!!

So there you have them, i made a few mistakes making these and the end product is far from perfect but E loves them and cant wait to wear them to bed tonight! In fact when she first saw them this morning she said they were her karate pyjamas! LOL!

I have 2 other oliver + s patterns here to make, so once i finish the pj's i cant wait to get started on them!


  1. They are gorgeous! You've inspired me to finish the PJs I started for S last winter, lucky I started making them big. Pants are easy, it's the tops I get stuck on.

  2. These look great Lou - I love that they are her karate PJ's. I didn't know there was such a thing as a pink fairy belt though!

  3. They are just flippin gorgeous! Love them .... good on you - job very well done! xoxo

  4. Love the pj's - well done! I have bought the same pattern and looking forward to starting on it.

  5. they are so cute....especially on your gorgeous girl who models them so beautifully xx

  6. They must be the most adorable and cutest PJs I have ever seen! I think she chose the fabric well too - it suits her.

    Can't wait to see the other 2 PJs too.
