  1. Great pattern, but size issues

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Dec 2014

    This pattern was simple to make and adorable. However, I was a little confused by the instructions for selecting a size. Fortunately, I had some scrap fabric and did a test mockup. The instructions say to use the chest measurement. All of the measurements on my granddaughter suggested I should use a size 5...but she normally wears a 7-8. Somewhere in the instructions was a note that the pj sizes correspond to ready to wear, and that is the case. I made a size 6 and it was WAY too short in the crotch and legs. The size 8 fit fine (a little long in the torso, but she can grow into it.). I used a micro fleece that had a one-way stretch. Maybe a size smaller would have worked if I had used a 2-way stretch knit. Overall, I am very pleased with the pattern. I also found a pattern for American Girl doll footed pjs on Pixie Faire that is very similar, so my granddaughter and her doll have matching outfits this Christmas!

  2. Great and easy to use

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Dec 2014

    I am using this pattern to make several Max costumes for a children's dance performance. It was easy to print and put together. The bold lines are easy to see through my pattern paper. I added a fly front zipper, and a 3 piece hood. They look great!

    Love this pattern! Very easy to sew up. Fits great. With the huge size range, I will use this for ever.

  4. Footed P.J. pattern

    Posted by Eleanor Padovano on 22nd Nov 2014

    This pattern is drafted very well. Having the option for a size 2T to 10/12 is wonderful. My grandchildren will be warm and happy this winter. Thanks for a great pattern!

  5. Very easy to work with!

    Posted by Stephanie on 14th Nov 2014

    I ordered this pattern to make pajamas for my 2-year-old daughter. I have never had much luck with sewing clothes but this pattern was so easy to use, this was my first usable project I've ever done! This pattern is very easy to alter and customize. While my first attempt was useable and easy to make, it didn't fit my daughter well because she has very long legs. I was able to piece together the various sizes to make a shorter torso area and longer legs, and bigger feet by following all of the marking lines. My second attempt fit perfectly!
    The only things improvements I would make would be to put more detail into how to attach a 1/2 zipper, as I got confused with that and had to search for a different explanation online and to write the pattern size markings on every page that prints out. I had a hard time with one part of the legs while trying to put it together, because we don't have a color printer and the various sizes weren't marked. Other than that, excellent pattern and good instructions!

  6. Great!

    Posted by Kylie White on 7th Nov 2014

    Loved this pattern. Whole project was very quick and easy. I added an extra strip up the front to be able to add kam snaps instead of a zip (as it was for a baby and we don't tend to use zips on baby sleepwear in the UK) but sewed up lovely! Thanks

  7. Love this patten!

    Posted by Maya on 30th Oct 2014

    I use this pattern to make my daughters "Max" from Where the Wild Things Are costume and loved it. Super easy, came out just like the picture, clear instructions. I plan to use it to make her lots more pjs through the years. I love that it has so many sizes in one package! I can't wait to make the other patterns I bought, too!

  8. amazing

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Oct 2014

    I love the way it fits my 3 mos old and it was easy to sew up

  9. Easy and cute!

    Posted by Marlene on 27th Oct 2014

    I love the footed pajamas. I bought the pattern to make a Halloween contest but I am certainly going to make more. I did make some mistakes, not due to the pattern, I was just tired and distracted by toddlers and a kitten who like to help. But the pattern was so easy that I was able to work with my mistakes without picking a single stitch. I used Wash Away Wonder Tape instead of pinning on all the curved parts and the zipper. That made it even easier. I'm very happy I made this purchase.

  10. Easy to assemble

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2014

    The pattern was easy to assemble from the pieces provided and the directions were mostly clear. My only challenge came in the neck assembly; but I'll tweak it a bit more next time I make the pajamas. (It would have been nice to have more photos for this part of the process.) One error (I think) -- the directions say to attach and baste the non-slip fabric to the WS (wrong side) of the sole. It should be the *right side*, as the non-slip fabric ends up on the outside sole of the foot, effectively covering the main fabric at that point. I also trimmed the nonslip fabric so its seam allowance was a bit shorter than either adjoining layer of fleece, for comfort.
    I made a size 8 for my 4-foot+ tall (and skinny!) 6-year-old, in order to have some growing room. As I hoped, it fit him with room to spare, although the torso seemed long in proportion to the legs. He says it's comfy, though, so I won't alter the pattern as I had planned for the next couple of sets I plan to make. Well worth the money and effort to make a pair of cute footie pajamas with fleece he picked out himself.

  11. So Cute

    Posted by Sue on 20th Oct 2014

    Very pleased to be able to make sleepers for my grandson with trendy knits. Love this pattern.

  12. Fav Jammies!

    Posted by Amber on 5th Aug 2014

    These are the only type of jammies my son wears in the winter. I was so excited when we found this pattern! I made him jammies last winter and we are already picking out materials to start on jammies for this upcoming winter! Straight forward, easy to follow directions. They went together quicker then I first expected. I would suggest to make sure to do the elastic in the back of the ankle, we skipped this the first time and it is so much better with it. :)

  13. Great Costume Base

    Posted by Linda on 28th Jul 2014

    Used as the base for our Curious George costume for Halloween. Kept my LO toasty, easy to sew, and was useable later. Win Win!

  14. Great Pattern!

    Posted by kaitlin madson on 25th Jun 2014

    The Classic Footed Pajamas were my first Peek-A-Boo pattern. The instructions are well written and clear, and the pictures included are so helpful. I was so excited to finish and have a real pair of footed pajamas!

  15. A definite winner!

    Posted by Natalie on 20th Jun 2014

    Made a set for my little girls, ended up not adding feet as she doesn't like her feet covered. She absolutely loves it.

  16. Winter must-have!

    Posted by Meg on 5th Jun 2014

    This was my first PAB pattern. I've sewn about ten of these so far. My daughter wears them to bed every night during the winter.

  17. Childhood memories

    Posted by Brittany on 24th May 2014

    Doesn't this one bring back childhood memories?? I loved sewing this up for mine and my sister's kids for Christmas. Soles are the only tricky part, but the tutorial is awesome. Can't go wrong here!

  18. Great Pattern

    Posted by Kim M. on 22nd May 2014

    I made these for my little one in fleece this past winter and they came out so cute. Attaching the soles could be a little tricky but the pattern walks you through it! Will be making many more next winter.
