First of all, thank you for your well wishes. Drummer was a good boy last night, he must know his momma is sick, and only woke up twice to eat. Now that I have my appetite (and calm stomach) back, I'm wishing for some French Onion soup. Too bad there's no such thing as a Soup Fairy!
So, you might have guessed I used the Oliver + S Sleepover Pajama pattern for the pajamas from yesterday. There are lots of things I love about Oliver + S patterns, which you know if you've read my blog for a while, but as I was whipping these up (the first one went together just fine, but then I had a system and the rest really came together quickly), I thought about how Liesl, the mastermind behind Oliver + S, gets her proportions right. The length of each finished garment is always just right, the fit is forgiving, yet still slim.On the pajamas, the placket is just the right width, and the cuffs are the perfect amount of roll-up-and-grow-into-ness.
Divine was disappointed that I didn't put the pockets on (I ran out of time in order to get them finished for Christmas Eve gift opening), but they are adorable and would have been perfect to stick a bedtime cuddly stuffed friend....there's always next year, right?
Today I have TWO Sleepover Pajama Patterns to give away (one size 6 mo-4T and one size 5-12). But it gets even better. Have you seen Liesl's sweet Cape Ann fabric line? There are itty bitty Oliver + S clothes, polka-dots, stripes, you know, just about all the things I love. I'm not a quilter, but I sure would love a quilt made out of these fabrics because they feel more like flannel (they're brushed cotton) but supposedly don't pill and stretch like flannel.
So, enter for a chance to win either a pattern (specify which size) or this lovely stack* of brushed cotton from the Cape Ann line.

*hehe, can you tell I'm not a quilter? I just looked it up and the proper terminology is fat quarter bundle, not stack.
