I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish these! I got the flannel for a steal at Joann Fabrics but I had been looking for weeks for a good child's pajama pattern with a collar and everything and couldn't find anything in the pattern books at fabric stores. Then I found this pattern at the thrift store a few weeks ago!

It was perfect! I'm on the look out for fabric that would make a good matching robe!

Its still big for my son but its better that I completed it before he could fit into it instead of making it after he'd outgrown the size right? I really enjoyed doing the collar to. I hadn't done a collar I think since my sewing class in college!

Thanks for looking! Be blessed! (And keep checking out your thrift store for patterns!)

Those are so sweet. I love thrift store patterns, espeacially for kids, the older pant ones I think are made alot slimmer which is what my kids need. And sometimes if you are lucky they are already cut to size.

Exactly! This one was totally cut to size! It was also thicker and had all the seam allowances marked out on it. Why on earth did they make patterns MORE complicated as the general public got LESS knowlegable about sewing? Does that make any sense to anyone?
