Pattern Overview

never change a winning team !


The winning team in the girl PJ department over here has changed last May.
It went from "girly nightgown" to "girly top and pants".

I used the Nore - top (Compagnie M) with the cute high-low hem and the Wolf (Zonen 09) pants. Both pattern designers are Belgian. The Nore top/dress is also available in English. My daughter loved the first attempt with this pattern combination. I thought it was a bit large and wanted to size down. The little lady did not agree: she ordered the exact same size, because it's so very very comfy. Her heels won't get cold for a while ;-)

The fabric is the result of my participation in rafflecopter give-aways. I know quite a lot of people don't trust the system. Entering your e-mail or facebook name? What about safety? And do they even give actual prizes? I go by the principle: if you entered your e-mail anywhere, your data is out there. So might as well try and get something in return. I think this is prize number 5 or 6 in a few years. I love give aways!

At the end of last year, I got lucky with the ChrisW Designs Global Blog Tour. I found a $25 gift certificate for Hawthorne Threads in my e-mail. :-)
However, I live in Belgium and shipping would pretty much use up the entire price :-(
I do have a friend living in the US. When she came home for the holidays, she brought my little extra in her suitcase. Yay!

Trying to make the most of it I picked up some gorgeous Michael Miller knits  by Sarah Jane on sale.
I found the right shade of ocre/yellow ribbing to complement the tiny stars in my stash. I tried to incorporate the cute selvedge in the neck ribbon. This is my second try at getting a more professional looking neckline. I'm making progress :-)

Thank you to the sponsors of the give away. 
My daughter loves her new PJ's!
