About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Simplicity 6685 pajamas and Giveaway



I pulled out vintage 1970's S6685 for the little girl and some vintage seersicker/plisse my mom had given me this weekend. I had just enough for the pajamas. It went together in a couple of hours, with handsewing the binding and making it from some cotton. I even bound the hem of the pants and opted for no wrist elastic. I cut out red gingham to work on a 2nd pair tonight.

Somehow, I have 3 copies of this pattern, all size 1. I am keeping one, giving one to a sewing friend who has a little girl a year younger than mine and doing a giveaway for the 3rd. Post for a chance and become a follower on the sidebar while you are at it for a 2nd chance. We are not sophisticated over here, so if you are entering a 2nd time for becoming a follower, please tell me in the comments. I will draw Sunday evening and post on Monday, Oct 11.

My sis just had a little girl, so I could honestly use this pattern! :) And I'm becoming a follower, too.

I could use this to make jammies for a relative who's having a baby--by the time I get some done, they'll be the right size! And, I'm a follower!
