I’m on a Petite Stitchery roll! lol
After seeing all the Thistle photos during the PSCo Unwind Collection release, I just had to give it a go. All the testers looked super cute and comfy in their pj’s en sleepy sets. Plus, there’s a romper version!!
The Thistle Sleepy Set is a versatile knit pattern, containing all the pieces needed for a complete relaxed sleep wardrobe for adults (or as casual wardrobe for lounging ‘round the house!)
Just like with Briar, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this one. The option included are:
- Tank Top
- Tank Nightgown
- Tank Romper w/Henley placket
- Optional Ruffles for the hemlines (can also just be hemmed.)
- Optional Shelf Bra for added support
I love a good one-piece, especially when lounging at home.
During winter I lived in onesies and when the weather started getting warmer, my LAB Lounger has become my go-to. But as summer approaches, even that one is starting to become a tad too warm to wear in the house. Thistle came to the rescue just in time!
I did hack mine though…
The placket is a super cute detail but, in this case, not very practical for me. I’m the type of person that when nature tells me #1 is calling I keep doing just one more thing… and then when I go I really need to go! TMI, I know… sorry! lol
So the idea of having to fumble with placket buttons (or even snaps) sounded a bit ‘dangerous’ for this sewist. 😛
In order to be able to eliminate the placket and still have my XL hip pass though the M neckline I used the front neckline on the back as well, creating a larger opening.
That simple and easy!
This was super easy and quick to put together, and except from adding length to the pattern, I got this fit on the first trial.
For reference: My girth is 70″ and I added 2″ to the pattern.
The fabric I used is (I believe) a viscose tricot from Driessen. It’s super cute, but I felt it was missing something so I put my Cricut into action!
Haha I love how this SVG turned out, simple and straight to the point. #moodofthedayeveryday
If you’d like to download the file for your personal use, I’ll leave the link down below.
I may have just ordered more fabric to make 2 more of these… and I may be regretting not buying more fabric for it… just maybe. lol
*Edited to Add another Thistle*
I decided to take Thistle out of the bedroom and into the world. lol
Used a sweater knit to make a cute summer top and absolutely love how it turned out!
I’ts airy and flowy and I the length is great.
I used the ruffle crop option, and it’s great to pair with my favorite: high waisted bottoms.
It’s still a little bit chilly to wear this out yet, but when summer rolls in I’ll be living in it. Such a cute result for a super easy and quick sew.
And here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come next on the blog… 😉
