Yet more PJs

Here're a few mores sets of PJs, 3 for each one of the boys. The pants pattern is from Ottobre's 4-03 issue, and the shirts are from my most used Ottobre issue, 4-04.

I've sewn up 4 more pairs of pants, but I haven't gotten the shirts sewn yet. I have the fabrics picked out for these 2 pants,

but I need to get for cranberry interlock for these penguins pants, and more white interlock for the ladybug pants.

Hopefully I'll be done with these soon. I actually like sewing pjs, but I've been doing nothing but sewing them for the last week, and I'm ready to move on to something else now.

Modified Jalie Cross Front Top

I searched high and low for a good knit dress pattern for my DD. I never did find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find this cute Jalie cross front pattern that was very close. So I just modified it a little bit by adding some length to get the dress that I wanted.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out. Cortney loves it, and has requested a few more.

Why do all of my children seem to run out of PJs before anything else? Maybe it's because I tend to leave sewing them until last, which really means I don't make them often enough. Well, I decided to fix that, and I made whole stack of them this past weekend. I made 7 pairs for my boys, and 2 for my DD. I still have a bunch more to do, but here are the ones I finished.
