The Carolyn Pajamas from Closet Core Patterns are your classic pajamas set. Cuffs, piping, a classic notched collar. This pattern has it all.

The decision is yours. Especially since we are providing you with enough fabric to make the choice on the fly. More...

- Blue and Black Buffalo Check Flannel - We couldn't do an entire pajamas theme and not have a plaid option. Honestly, when I think of pajamas, this is the fabric that comes to mind, lumberjack and all. This top weight flannel, a thin, lightweight brushed shirting, is just right for pajamas - not too hot, not too cold. Plus, the vibrant blue is a subtler take on the traditional red and black check, and the serene feel of it is perfect to take you off to dream land. A classic pajama choice!
- Cranes at Sunset Cotton Lawn - The softness and opacity of lawn makes it so versatile and wearable that you could consider it an unsung wunder-fabric. This lawn is no exception. Plus, the color! The bright watermelon pink evokes beautiful sunsets, and the white cranes are playful without being cutesy. The crispness of this lawn will soften over time, just like your favorite set of bed sheets, and the tightly woven cotton will keep you cool all night long.
- Turquoise Space Thistles 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? The bright turquoise of the gauze is speckled with teal, white, and navy dots and stars, creating a fun and subtle pattern. If you're looking for a fabric to brighten up your sleepwear game, this is it!
Also in this box: Matching thread, fusible interfacing, contrast piping, 5 shirt buttons, waistband elastic, and a sewing machine needle
I sewed up the Dec box immediately! The fabric was gorgeous. I chose the box based on the luxurious Atelier Brunette fabric and was so pleased by the quality. I decided it was so special that it would make a perfect holiday gift for my daughter. She is going to love these pjs. I love getting everything I need to sew a beautiful garment in one box without hassle and I love getting to try out new patterns. This month’s merchant & mills pattern I probably wouldn’t have picked up but was pleasantly surprised and will make it again!
The glen check in this month’s box is amazing. I love how it’s subtle yet has that splash of colour in the plaid. The fabric has use a touch of spandex which will make these trousers so comfortable. Always a home run with these boxes!
Loved it! Such a fun and challenging project
The jersey knit was the perfect fabric for this pattern, absolutely love my new dress!
This was my first box I've ordered. I could not be more impressed! Everything is so thoughtful--whatever I could possibly need is in there (including chocolate! Lol) for any of the versions I decide to do. The material is beautiful and the lining materials and threads coordinate perfectly. I have not had a chance to get started on the sewing yet but I can't wait!
