Pyjama Party Reveal! McCalls 5989

I am late revealing my jammies because of the rain…I had planned to do my pics outside in our pretty sunshine. oops!  And then I decided to do my hair and makeup (what an occasion this is…).

Adorable robe and bottoms. My fabrics are from JoAnns –  I sewed a size 14 with no alterations, except for a couple adds in the robe, below.

Simple bottoms, thoroughly comfy. I did them in a cute seersucker stripe and used a 1″ knit elastic waistband. I plan to do more in seersucker and in quilting cotton, so many print choices and constantly on sale.


I must say that making the robe was like making a couture coat! And I think it would be stunning in velvet as an evening coat. Mine is done in a funky fabric called tutti fruitti. It washed up soft as a worn sheet, really nice for this robe. (Strange, I used it in a red polka dot that is still crisp after many washing. Must be the dye.)

The pattern suggested making a thread belt loop – NOT – I added sewn loops in the side seam. And of course I added in-seam pockets 3 1/2″ down from the natural waistline. What is a robe without pockets?

Did I leave out something? Oh, yes. This pattern comes with a top, which I will call the paper doll top. It earned this moniker by not having any shaping for someone over the age of, say, 8. It is and will remain unfinished, since I will take a tee shirt over this any day 🙂
Quickly now…what I’m reading….
And passing the ball!!

Happy Pyjama Day to all my fellow sewists and readers and everyone who loves a good PJ bottom – Coco
