This is an Abakhan.co.uk and Jaycotts.co.uk Blog post.
I was thrilled and a bit amazed to be given this fabulous length of Librty Tana Lawn which Abakhan.co.uk are selling at a fantastic price . For details of the fabrics in this range go to Liberty Tana Lawn from Abakhan.co.uk the fabric I used is listed below.
The fabric is rather extravagant for loungewear but then again why not? I wanted pj's which look like they should be a man's pair, and so decided that they should also be loose fitting.
The fabric is Liberty Tana Lawn , Seth Rankine Blue from Abakhan.co.uk. available to buy on this link here Liberty Tana Lawn from Abakhan.co.uk But do look at their other fabrics too! This fabric is £12.95 a metre and you need four metres for women's pyjamas. This is an extremely good price. There are a lot of designs in this range, your only problem will be in choosing your favourite.
the pattern is SIMLICITY 1504 FROM Jaycotts.co.uk Simplicity1504 at Jaycotts.co.uk This is a multi sized patern with thankfully seperate pattern pieces for childens, teens and adult sizes.
With any fabric wash and iron it before cutting out and then inspect it for flaws. Even the most expensive fabric may have a tiny flaw somewhere and it is better to examine the fabric before cutting into it and marking any flaws that you find with tailors chalk. When you think about it, fabric is produced in such vast quantities that it would be almost impossible for every single inch to be perfect throughout the run.I found this tiny flaw on the selvedge.
Stitch a pocket to each ftoser side and press the seam .
