Closet Case Files: Carolyn Pyjamas

Made from pretty Liberty fabric, they are not what Missie would naturally pick but she wasn’t with me when I shopped for fabric so this is what happens ­čÖé Luckily, she likes them.

The only thing I must do next time…stop┬áhand stitching the hems and waistband. Time to embrace stitching in the ditch.

Oh, the fabric is from my favourite Doha fabric store, Ilham Textiles in Asiri Market where Naomi and I go to buy Liberty. We are always welcomed with a massive smile and hot glasses of tea. I must get a photo next time…


Oh, dear. I really ought to do something but I’m in my pyjamas.

This will be my go to retort to any question after 3pm. Consider yourselves warned ­čÖé Particularly likely when the option of slipping on some┬áCloset Case Carolyn┬áLiberty┬áMidnight┬ápyjamas… For such a pairing, I French seamed them all, even the pockets. Details, peeps. Details.

Until next time, chat quietly amongst yourselves.
