Summer PJs




I have been sewing my little guy up a bunch of pajamas for summer because somehow no size 2/3 summer pajamas seem to have been saved from the big kid.  I don't know how that happened, since I saved nearly everything else.  Anyway, I also have a lot of cute flannel prints that I wanted to use up.  The fabric specifically says on the selvage that it is not intended for children's sleepwear, but I decided to use them for pajamas anyway.  I think the reason for the warning is that you are not supposed to make loose-fitting cotton items for children to sleep in because they can catch fire and burn more easily if exposed to a flame.  My children, however, do not play around open flames so I think the risk is a small one.



I used the Seaside Summer Top pattern from GYCT Designs for the pajama tops and the Goodnight, Sweetheart pj pants from Sewing for Boys (affiliate link).  Both are a quick sew and make a cool comfortable pajama for summer nights.

I made one pair with short bottoms in this cool robot print.


For the second pair I used this fun monkey print and made long pants.


So, the little guy is on his way to having a full summer wardrobe...
