A Simple Little Project

I made pj bottoms for the girls for Christmas this year.  My friend Summer sent me a link to Handmade Mommy and her post about pattern-less pajamas.   Since I had to make three different sizes this was perfect! Yippee. 

After I cut them out using other pj bottoms, I sewed ruffles on the hem.  When I do pajamas, I always sew wrong sides together when adding ruffles or cuffs. 
Then I can add ribbon to cover the seam.  It makes the pajamas less itchy, no thread or seam allowance against your legs.  Also, I sew french seams, again to eliminate itch.
Here's my youngest in hers.  She made me finish them for her preschool Christmas party, which was a pajama party.  Then we got there and it wasn't.  Oh, well, still cute!
