Diesel Train Christmas PJ's by Rebecca
Oliver + s bedtime story pajamas
My son has been begging for Diesel train pajamas for months now, so I'm making him a set of Oliver + S Bedtime story pajamas with train fabric from Elizabeth's Studio In Motion collection for Christmas.
I had previously figured out how to make the pants with french seams - see ^oliver-s-bedtime-story-pj-pants for details on that. This time I decided to attempt french seams on the kimono top as well as the pants, and added snap tabs instead of using ties. I think I may need to add one more snap in closer to get a little better fit.
I barely had enough of the blue polkadot for trim, but managed to scrape together just enough scraps to get the pieces I needed. I went through several other fabrics as possible trim options but they all made the trains look like they should go on someone older not a 3 year old. The polkadots added just the right amount of fun to the fabric to make it more age appropriate.
If you click on the pictures below, you can see a closeup of both the french seams/interior snap tab and the exterior snap tab.
