I have to preface this post with the disclaimer that I don't usually make clothing patterns - and the main reason is that I really don't know how to convert something from one size to another. Still I like to sew clothes when I can, and I can't help but love the simplicity of this style of shirt. So anyway, don't think of this as a pattern so much as a how-I-did-it-maybe-you-can-too.
These pjs were made during a few stolen hours one Saturday, when I was supposed to be sewing for the book. I saw this very pink flowery fabric and it suddenly dawned on me - this would be perfect for light spring pajamas! - because, I don't know why, but they love to be extra girly at pajama time.
The shirt is basically a raglan shirt with a really wide neck. You add elastic to make it a normal size with a ruffly kind of look.
The size I drafted below is what I'm calling a 3T. I enlarged it for the older kid, and it seemed a little too big, so then I had to take it up. So it seems like if you're enlarging you need to add less width than height? Does that sound right? Anybody know?
Well, anyway. The dimensions I used are below, with instructions for the shirt in the photo. It's super easy (just the way I like it), I made both sets of pjs in only a couple of hours.
And coming soon, I turned this same pattern into a spring dress set...
