Description

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.

What great fabric! Is it flannel?

Rebecca

Thanks! My son is crazy about trains so I am always on the lookout for a good print. This one's not flannel - just regular quilting cotton.
