New Vintage Wardrobe Project #10 : PJ Party Of One
Ooops you caught me. Late in the morning and still in my PJ's.
But it's Okay! They are New Vintage Fashion, darlings!
Simplicity 4184 pajamas and housecoat.. circa late 1950's.
PJ's made from a vintage sheet and housecoat from a vintage chenille bedspread. That's right... Bed clothes from bedclothes.
So sweet and perky that I wake up every morning with a necklace on and a dewy gardenia in my beehive.
This little ensemble was a bit challenging as the sheet was just barely big enough and chenille is a real adventure in cutting. The sewing of it was mostly just peachy but a couple of times my machine sort of swore at me, just a little. You know, it made a sound like when you mess up on a game show, only more threatening.
This was my first plaid matching and it was just as tricky as all the books said it would be. That is why I tried it on something to wear around the house first.
Don't you just love the idea of a housecoat? So cute and feminine. Cuts the chill without all the mass of a big robe.
I am going to express my joy through interpretive dance.
Holy Mother of Pearl.. That was ridiculous!
