Eeeeeee!!!! I am SUPER excited to be a part of the Jocole February Love Blog Tour for two reasons: 1. Jocole is one of my favorite women's pattern designers and 2. I have really really wanted to make myself some pajamas, like, for years. Jocole patterns are a great base for pajamas because most, if not all, of the patterns can be made in knit. Knit is a super comfy fabric with plenty of stretch without needing zippers and buttons to get a close fit. You can see the full list of women's patterns by Jocole here.
I know it's February and effectively cold pretty much everywhere in the country, except south Florida. However, I happen to live in north Florida and it's warm enough most days to justify making a tank and shorts pajama set, plus we just turn on the heat. I used the Ladies Shoreline Knit Tank pattern for the top and modified the Ladies Wide Leg Yoga Pants for the bottom. My dot fabric is from EuroGirls Boutique and the solid is from my local Jo-ann Fabrics store.

I was soooo please with how this set turned out that after the photos I "tested" my pajamas by eating a huge plate of food and then taking a nap. No pictures of the eating or napping, sorry. I am not a champion sewer of knit, but I hope that I sparked an interest in sewing more with knits or making your own pjs. I would love to see if you do!
