Mini Stanley vintage pjs

I’ve been promising my daughter a pair of pjs for far too long. Most of the patterns I own are vintage ones but I must say that a vintage pyjama is much the same as a modern one! I can’t find a date on this one. Perhaps 1950s or maybe 1960s. What do you think?

Of course the very simplest of designs can be made all the more special with a lovely fabric. And Cath Kidston’s Mini Stanley print worked wonders! Such a soft brushed satin cotton. I am quite jealous!

I’m trying hard to convince my daughter to have the matching top, too but I don’t think 9 year olds can see past those lovely old vintage illustrations!

I’m very time short at the moment so this little 2 hour project was a perfect kick start to the new year. Hoping to share some more interesting makes soon!

Also blogged at ooobop!

Happy New Year everyone x

  1. Cute!

    I love the fabric choice. Fun and age appropriate. The top on that pattern is totally fab! Perhaps you should make the top anyway, you know, just for fun? Maybe if your daughter participated in the construction of the top, she might be more interested? Anyhoo, your daughter is gorgeous and looks adorable in her new pj’s.
