Thoughts of Spring brings my mind to new pajamas. I always make myself new pajamas in the Springtime. The pajamas I am showing you today are a pair that I made a year ago. These are among my favorites. Made of mint green Victorian batiste, they are light weight and cool and, thanks to the various heirloom techniques employed in their design, feminine.
Pintucks fashioned along each side of the front bodice are embellished with old fashioned feather stitch. And sandwiched between the button placket and the pin tucks, are insertions which I made from ivory Victorian batiste which I embroidered with bullion roses and chain stitch.
This same insertion is used along the cuff of each sleeve and adds a nice touch.
The pattern for this set is the Lounging Shirt ensemble from Sleepwear Especially for You by Martha Pullen.
Enjoy! Merry Gay
