Good Morning!!! How did you sleep? More importantly how did those little ones sleep??? Well I am sure they would be sleeping even better in the Sleepy Bear PJ's by Ellie Inspired - the next pattern included in the Boys BundleUP collection. And even if they don't sleep well, maybe your forgive them because they are just sooooooo cute!
This set includes a V neck T, loose fitting PJ pants, and a great hooded robe. Check out Crystal's full review and her adorable set.....
Let me give you all the details on this pattern…
- Pattern for sizes 1 all the way to 16!
- Fabric requirement chart.
- Finished measurement chart.
- There are 60 pattern pages to print for all three pieces, so this pattern is a bit of a paper hog. But you can print the pattern for all three pieces or just print one of the three if you want.
- Pattern pieces are all in black and white which I love because I don’t print in color.
- Pieces are nested with different dotted lines to distinguish the sizes; it is easy to assemble and to cut your desired size.
- Measurements are given for the rectangular pieces.
- Optional shirt pocket and back pocket for the pants
- All three pieces are a fairly quick sew, I had my whole set done in about 2 hours.
- The pattern has diagrams for each step. The diagrams are great for most steps, but I think I would have preferred a photo or 2 to help me through a few steps.
- I think this pattern would be suitable for any advanced or adventurous beginner. While the pieces are simple to sew, I think a true beginner might need a bit of help working through this pattern between working with knit, bindings, and a V neck.
The pattern has a finished garment measurement chart as I mentioned above rather than a chart to check your child’s measurements. To get a great fit, you can easily measure a shirt and pair of pants that fit your child well and compare those measurements to the finished measurement chart - and voila, perfect PJ's.
I struggled a bit with the V-neck collar on the shirt. This was my first time doing a collar like this and I found the instructions in the pattern just weren’t quite enough for a first timer on that step. I ended up looking up a tutorial online to help me through. The pattern has since been updated with a bit more instruction for that step - so awesome when a designer responds so quickly to feedback!
