Pjs to Everyday Wear
The longer this pandemic goes on, the more I'm reaching for cozy clothes. I can tell you the only reason you see me in jeans on this post is because I wanted to show options. You can find me in pajamas or cozy clothes 90% of the time. So it got me thinking, how can I show that pajamas can be worn out of the house too? I think I have it figured out!
I started with this fun floral rib knit from Mily Mae Fabrics. It's a darker coral color with white and black flowers. I love rib knit and the versatility that it really has. I've sewn a lot of rib knit lately because it works for just about everything.
Picking patterns that work for pajamas but don't necessarily look like pajamas on their own was the next key. I've been wanting to make another Breckenridge Henley for a few weeks so that seemed like an easy pick. I wrote about my love of the Breckenridge here for more details on this pattern. This is actually my first short sleeve Breckenridge but that works so well for spring. The Breckenridge was drafted for everyday wear so wear it with jeans and you are good to go on your way.
I chose to pair the floral with white lush rib knit for the placket, also from Mily Mae Fabrics. This is a fabric base that has 4 way stretch, sews well and is easy to work with. I like that the white created a pop of the neckline and showed off the non-traditional v-neck henley. To show off the black in the flowers, I added 3 small black buttons for the closure.
