Sew a PJ Set: Carolyn Pajamas
The Carolyn Pajamas from Closet Core Patterns are your classic pajamas set. Cuffs, piping, a classic notched collar. This pattern has it all. The beauty of the pattern, though, is that you have the option to make either the long sleeve/long pant version or the short sleeve/shorts version, or some combination of the two. The decision is yours. Especially since we are providing you with enough fabric to make the choice on the fly.

- Violet Cotton Double Gauze - Incredibly soft and lightweight, with an almost spongy hand, this fabric is what people use to swaddle babies, if that gives you any idea of how lush it is. So why not swaddle yourself as an adult in this wonderful fabric? This gauze, unlike many out there, has a smooth, uncrinkled surface, and light, airy hand. And because it's cotton, it will soften with each washing and get better the more you wear it. Plus, the light violet purple reminds us of cupcake frosting, and how sweet is that?
- Gray on White Tartan Flannel - While most tartans tend to be on the darker side, this plaid is bright and light, combining icy gray and creamy white, for an effect that is soft and serene. It evokes cozy days when you snuggle up for a bit of self-care. And, honestly, who wouldn't want that in a pair of PJs?
