I’m really glad I’m posting this pajama set for the Belle doll from the Disney non-animated movie Beauty and the Beast because as I created this blog post, I went back to find where I’d posted these pajamas for Barbie back in March, but I couldn’t find them.
Somehow I got my wires crossed and forgot to finalize the Barbie version of these pajamas!
As you can see in the image of Barbie below, the pajama top is actually reversible, so you can have it double as a tank top for a cotton shorts ensemble, on one side, while having it made of flannel to go with pajamas on the opposite side:
Later this week or next week I’ll re-post these pajamas again for Barbie, so I can add them to the Barbie gallery. Remember, I’m just one person, running this website, and it has become quite a large production!
So watch for a later posting of Belle in the bathrobe, once I get those photos taken.
Now you’ll notice in the image below, that the straps on the reversible pajama top are a little thick and awkward looking.
When I first made the video tutorial for this pajama top, I used ribbon straps instead, and I like how that turned out much better, so when you sew your PJ top, definitely go with ribbon straps.
See how nice they look?
With that said, to make the reversible pajama top, you’ll need some flannel fabric, some cotton fabric, and some 1/4 inch wide Offray ribbon. For the back closure, you can use sew-on Velcro or snaps. I recommend Dritz Size 4/0 snaps if you’re planning to use snaps.
For the pajama pants, you’ll need some flannel fabric and some 1/8 inch elastic. As it says in the pajama pants tutorial video, I’m using Elastic By the Yard, which is a perfect size (and a very reasonable price) for this particular project.
And if you don’t already own them, I do recommend buying a pair of those tiny 5″ Fiskars detail scissors. They are designed for clipping tiny seams — which I do a lot when I’m making doll clothes!
