It's Historical Sewing Fortnightly time again! This challenge was the UFO challenge. Alas, I had no historical UFOs so I chose one of the other options and made up an "unfinished idea" instead.
I had planned on making a vintage robe this fall and I'd even bought a pattern and fabric. Alas, when the vintage pattern came, it was missing a piece so I had to return it. :( I did have a 1930s style pj top pattern that I'd found free online a while ago so I snapped up a modern pj pattern for the bottoms and decided to finish my vintage lounge wear after all!
The Challenge: UFO (or UFI in my case.)
Fabric: 3 yds flannel backed satin ($5/yd)
Pattern: Butterick 3314 ($2) and Vera Venus Pattern 30s Style Pj Top (free)
Notions: bias binding (stash), elastic (stash)
How historically accurate is it? Not really. The pants are modern but I did add some width to make them more 30s wide legged style. The blouse is 30s style but I'm not sure how accurate it is, not having made any 30s pjs before. So, we'll put it in the "inspired" category.
Hours to complete: 3 or so
First worn: January 27 to sleep in
Total cost: $17
Oh, these are so much more glamorous than my usual pjs!
***Edit*** So I slept in them last night and the armholes on the blouse are too small for sleeping! They were ok when I was just lounging around but I think I need to find some smaller bias binding so they'll be just a tad bigger.
