Uh, this looks to be the beginning of a personal collection of Lakeside pajamas….
I’m nuts about this crazy fabric – it’s been in my stash for 4 or 5 years from the remnants at Osgood’s in Springfield, MA. It’s a satin I guess (I really know too little about textiles). Unfortunately I did not have enough to match the pattern.
Mr. Nice is responsible for props. Vegan Pie in the Sky, anyone? :)
I attempted to make bias tape out of the scraps, which resulted in a wonky tank hem, but it’s not too bad. I chose to use regular bias tape for the neck, straps, and shorts for some structure, but was worried that it would be too stiff for the hem.
My weirdo “bias tape” resulted in something more like piping along the hem. These are about the only 2-3 inches of it that weren’t crooked.
I went a size up on the shorts because nobody wants too-tight-satin. I’m torn about what size to make for the next two sets (one top already cut, next fabric bought), but I’m thinking the shorts look a little loose in the pic below? Maybe I need to grade between the sizes.
Oh yeah, and another lovely improvisation of mine due to a limited amount of fabric was to cut the front waistband on the bias. Terrible idea, it’s kind of stretched out, but well, they’re still wearable so far.
I’m going to try not to turn this into a Lakeside-only blog… I’ll have to find something else to post to break it up!
