Second of all... Yes, this post contains projects finished in 2013. I haven't been good about taking pictures lately.
So, it turns out I did actually end up making some pants in 2013. At the very very very end. My sister and I got invited to a New Year's Eve Pajama Party. And guess what I have been needing to make for a really really long time? PJs.
Luckily, I picked up some cute flannel prints just a few weeks earlier (before I knew about the party - it was all very serendipitous like that), and cut them out using my TNT Burda pattern the morning of the party.

|PJ pants! New Year's party edition.|
|Guess what? Monkey butt!|
|The selvedge informs me that this fabric is not intended for children's sleepwear.|
Good think there are no children here... Err... wait....
|Version #2 - crazy zig-zag flannel pj pants.|
|Yeah, there is a seam there. And a pocket.|
Pretty darn pleased with my stripe matching.
|Obligatory booty shot. Based on these pjs, I am pondering |
if I could actually get away with legit crazy print pants as we have been
seeing in Burda. Maybe in not quite so bright a color... but... is a possibility?

Both patterns have been made before, and will likely be made again.
You can see how the neckline gapes quite a bit, but that is entirely due to fabric choice.
|Since the lime plaid was part of a mystery bundle, |
I didn't have quite enough to get a perfect match on the stripes,
but it is close enough to live with for pj pants.
|More pillowcases, using the same tutorial as earlier.|
Found the fabric in LA, and made these as a late Christmas gift for my sister.
|I love the one with all the little cameras!|
|The other one uses the camera print as a trim, and a shiny dot cotton as the main print.|
As far as upcoming sewing plans... definitely going to be focused on skating costumes. Actually, most of these stuff got sewn several months ago, and I only just got around to posting photos of it. I have a few other un-photographed projects, as well as a bit of a fabric stash confession to make in an upcoming post. Definitely have a long list of things I want to sew, but an even longer list of things I have to sew. Fun-for-me sewing might not happen until late summer at this point. But, well, skating season is upon us!
