Ah sleepwear! This was such a challenge for me, as I figured that my typical sleepwear – yoga pants and a 5-year-old fun run T-shirt – would not bode well for a sewing challenge.
Hmm – how about a pajama set? No – I don't wear that and something that Mena impress upon all of us at the start of this Sew Weekly year was to make things you will actually wear! So that was out. Maybe some yoga pants – ugh. No suitable materials were to be found in Houston on short notice (viva procrastination!)
I know – an adorable bralette and knickers set I can wear in the summertime (my bedroom likes to be super hot when it's hot out – like right now!) I had in my stash a great pattern, the Colette Nutmeg, and decided that this was the day to try it out!
Let me tell you folks – as nervous as I was to make unmentionables, they were pretty straightforward to make. The instructions were clear and there was only one part that I had to rip and remake – the back of the bralette. It's pieced together in a weird way and I tried to wing it (fail), then followed the directions correctly (win) and it was sorted!
The verdict? Perfect for hot summer night! They fit perfectly and the voile is so soft, abiet a bit see through (hence the "Oh no I am so not going to wear this for the whole internet to see!)
