Another been there, done that before pattern! This was my third and fourth time sewing the Sleepover Pajamas by Oliver and S, and they turned out just as cute as always!
The pattern is easy, and there aren't too many pattern pieces, which is nice. Often, when sewing, I like to complete the shirts first, always finding pants to be more work. Clearly, in THIS case, it's the opposite, so, I whipped up the bottoms before attacking the tops, which again, are NOT a big deal.
I will say, though, that I remembered too late that I always think there is something wrong with the pattern - that the buttonband piece isn't long enough - but that is because you hem the shirt BEFORE attaching it....someone please remind me next time...whew. I cut out extra pieces and everything ;) Thankfully, I sewed Tiberius's pajamas first, so, I didn't mess up the second time around.
As for Tiberius's pair, I totally forgot to lengthen the top, and I don't recall if i lengthened the legs. I wish I had done all this, as they totally outgrow the length before the width. I sewed him a straight size 3, I think (why not a 4?!), and I sewed Camden a size 7, with a size 8 length, so, they're out of control long, but I don't care. Other than that, nothing riveting to say. I happily had the right buttons in my stash, which rarely happens - yay!!!
