Princess Leia Pyjamas

This is the second half of my Frocktails 2017 lucky door prize from “For the love of Fabrics” online shop. My other one is now a Chewbacca nightie. This one is a Princess Leia print that was destined to be pyjamas. (#starwarsgeek)

I made yet another Grainline Lark Tee, this time with three-quarter sleeves. I also added a bit of width at the hem, making it flare from the ribs.

Like the Chewbacca nightie I made the back and sleeves from a blue poly cotton knit. That used up all the remaining blue poly cotton so I used some blue double brushed polyester for the bottoms. They don’t match but I don’t really care.

I used the Made 2 Measure template with a waistband modification. I created a yoke of about 8 centimetres in width. I used powermesh to support the yoke instead of lining it with more double brushed poly. For some extra security I also added a row of narrow elastic to the top of the waistband. And just in case I can’t get dressed properly, I added a “This is the back” label – to the back. Not the front as I threatened to a certain teenaged relative…

I widened the legs at the knee and ankles, creating an almost yoga pants look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Costs

Fabric – Princess Leia panel – Frocktails 2017 lucky door prize.

Blue poly cotton knit – I can’t remember anything about this fabric, so it was probably a gift.

Double brushed polyester from LA Finch fabrics, also from 2017. It was part of a end of both bundle and was $10.00 for 1.5 metres.

Pattern – Made 2 Measure template + yoga waistband modification from Sewhere. Used many times so now free.

Powermesh – Two metres bought in 2018 from the Remnant Warehouse, I’m guessing $3.00 for the amount used here.

Annoyance factor – Low

Totals = $13.00 – for adult Star Wars pyjamas !!!!!
