Pajama Pants and Ulterior Motives
So, PJ pants are something we've had on the to-do list for a while, but I think what finally moved it up the priority chain was realizing that EVERYONE gets to wear their Pjs to dance competitions except us when we're selling. So the only legit way for us to wear our PJs while we're vending is to sell them! AHA! Then we're not just being lazy, we're showcasing the product.
I know, I know, pure genius. Yes, we're very proud of ourselves :) Anyway, the finished product is shown above, modelled by the lovely Kirsten who was nice enough to make dance-y looking poses in the parking lot outside our Highland studio in between classes. These are WAY too big for her (I made them for me) so they aren't this baggy. Just big enough to be comfy :)
The other thing that prompted the PJ venture was this awesome flannelette -- lightweight, warm, super soft and hello, ARGYLE! This stuff comes in a bunch of matching patterns and colours -- you can see in the picture below that the back of these pants are actually a dots print which matches the argyle on the front.
And it wouldn't be an IHTD product without some applique -- I went with a trinity knot heart here in Dress Royal McKellar tartan and white cotton eyelet, but I could do it in just about any colour and pattern (initials? stars? flowers? shamrocks?) Limited only by your desire to keep them machine washable (which these are on cold and tumble dry low)!
I've got this flannelette in pink, lavender, sky blue and kelly green and the pants will be $25 plus shipping (and tax, if you're in Ontario). Stay tuned to the website, and thanks for looking! :)
