Going Bananas in New Pyjamas

Isn't this fabric bonkers? It did have the advantage of being cheap- but now I have a pair of ginormous pyjama trousers made from it I am off to join the circus! I will not be hooking any new love interest in these (not that that would be my intention obviously). You have to feel sorry for Simon, before the kids I would slink around in tiny silky numbers with my hair free exfoliated pins on display to lure him away from his paper. Now?.......Co-co the hairy clown! I am not feeling as sorry for myself as that sounds, the pyjamas are one more thing off the list- another adventure is dress making and will be blissfully airy on a hot summer night- best tuck a lavender sachet in with them in the drawer- it will be a while before they see the light of day- or the circus spots again.

I am aware that 'clearing stock' is the job for the week, an I have made progress with sorting and purchasing a variety of Jiffy bags but the light has been just terrible so the taking of photographs has been out of the question.

Anyway who can be sad? One more down, sixteen to go, and at least when Simon chucks me out for letting myself go just a little to far I know where I can run away to!

Sorry to hear that they didn't quite work out. Hopefully you'll have better luck with the dress making. I'm going to try to make myself a few cute dresses for the summer, we'll see how that goes, if I can ever get around to it, that is.

I hear Ringling Bros are accepting applications right now.

Oh bless your little cotton socks or very large pyjama bottoms that is - just remember 'they are' the lucky ones, blokes that is!!

Hope you're feeling cheerier - those pants had to have helped! :)

I have to say that I have always found those PJ bottom patterns quite gigantic, too - I have used 2 different patterns, and the legs always turn out very wide - I am not sure why! But it is so chilly here, I think I am past caring - the more and copious the layers the better!

I'm sure you'll look lovely, I have some Tyrrell Katz pjs - the ones with dogs on and they are gigantic, I wore them when I was v.pregnant, would be very useful for camping trips :)

These would look great in the summer with a vest top (take your pick on colour to match!) and flip flips, lounging around on a hot summers night (remember those) painting your toe nails, if you can still reach. Kx

I would say keep thinking "cute" and less "ringling bro's circus" keep some positive imagery going because that fabric is cute.
