In this week’s YouTube video, I show you how to make the PJ’s (pajamas) that I gave you a pattern for in yesterday’s post. In case you missed that post, here are those patterns again:

Now the pattern for the shorts that go with this pajama set is the same basic pattern as the one I posted on Tuesday. It’s the elastic-waist “booty shorts” that go with the 1950’s style swimsuit. So here’s the video showing how to make those shorts, in case you wanted a little help with those.
Take a close look in this image, and you’ll see my MTM Barbie is wearing shorts under her pajama:
If you make your pajama top out of flannel, like I show in the tutorial video, then I recommend sewing the shorts out of flannel too. However I found the cotton pajama (the one that’s pink with cupcakes and a heart button) to be a much easier fabric, to get the look you want, for small dolls like Barbie, Francie, and Skipper.
So I recommend using cotton for this project, even though flannel will work as well.

this is a very cute pajama pattern. Thank you for sharing.
First I wanted to tell you how adorable your patterns are and thank you for sharing them. My granddaughters are going to be thrilled.
My question is about the pajamas top. How did you attached the front side of the bias tape to the skirt fabric. I understand you did the whip stitch on the inside–but did you also do a whip stitch on the front or did you use a machine?
Hi Lorrie. I’m pleased you are enjoying my patterns and tutorial videos.
Yes, my whipstitch goes all the way through to the front of the pajama top. Here’s a link to my whipstitch tutorial, if that will help at all: https://wp.me/p1LmCj-FNk
I also have a tutorial video all about bias tape, and you may find it even more helpful: https://wp.me/p1LmCj-GRy
Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It’s questions like these that help me improve the quality of future tutorials, just because it helps me understand what needs better clarification.
So thank you!
