Black Satin Carolyn Pajamas



f you're an avid coffee drinker in the morning then I think we can agree that the saddest part of waking up is an empty coffee cup. It took me the better part of the first two months of 2016 and even a couple days into March to finally finish my PJ's. The shorts were done in a couple days but the shirt was a whole new world for me.
 I had never done a notched lapel before and it was a learning process, and still looks a bit wonky in real life, but I blame that partly on my learning curve and the fact that I chose black satin for my first PJ set.
I chose black satin because after spending days in sagging maternity pants and an over-sized Paypal tee that has spit up down the shoulder I was ready for something pretty and special just for me. There is something to be said about PJ's that match and how it can improve your mood.
I plan on making another pair at some point but my sewing list is a mile long right now and there are more pressing things I need, like jeans!
The Carolyn PJ pattern is from Heather at Closet Case Files, and I really love her level of instruction when explaining the notched lapel. I went the extra mile and made my own piping which is my favorite detail. If you need a new set of PJ's this is the pattern to use?
