Those Christmas pyjamas I mentioned...

Oh my, there has been poorliness for all in our home this past month. Hopefully we have now all shared so can get on with being healthy and cheery once more. And even though it may be one of the sunniest days of the year so far, I am going to show these pyjamas - which P is still wearing. He doesn't seem to mind snow globes in spring
 The pattern is the much used oliver +s sandbox pants at its most simple - actually, just without the pockets, but that is enough to make these a quick make. Made in the size eight I think (oh why don't I pay better attention, or make a note somewhere as to which size I'm making? I end up each time looking to see which is the largest size traced off and using that... there has to be a better method!) If these are a size eight then they are still rather long on my newly nine year old, and would be massive around the waist.  I have learnt to use Patch's waist measurement rather than that suggested in the pattern as they do seem to come up oh so large.
The fabric was the main reason for these pyjamas. Oh, and it was Christmas. It is cotton + steel's snow globes and it is oh so soft and a delight, purchased from poppies and polka dots. And they should still fit come next Christmas!

    1. Thank you! I am having a lovely time this morn catching up with nice comments and a cup of coffee, strangely these comments have only just appeared. P apparently has no care for seasonally appropriate patterns on his pyjamas and is wearing these happily in May! Do hope your kitchen is progressing happily!
