    I&#39;ve been looking for this for weeks (not that I couldn&#39;t have bought many others ;op)… of course now I have to figure out how to size down the size 4 to a 2T ;o) You are amazing… you are going to see quite a few of your tutorials being used by me when I make baby girl&#39;s spring wardrobe!

  12. Tammy

    I printed out your pattern today and tried to get started but I can&#39;t seem to find the shirt facings in the pattern pieces. Am I missing them somewhere? Please let me know where to find them or if I need to create my own somehow. I am excited to try making some. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.

    1. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      The facing is shown on the pattern pieces with different colored lines, you will have to trace the pattern or cut the facings last.

    2. Tammy

      Duh! Now I see where you explained all that on the pattern. Sorry for being the slacker who didn&#39;t read all the instructions first. Thanks again.

    About how many yards does it take to make them

    1. Shauna@shwinandshwin

      I used 1 1/2 yards total for the size 4T (since it could be used any direction) For Jude&#39;s (about a 6) I used 2 yards, and some scraps of another fabric for the facing. If you are using fabric that can only be used one direction I would recommend 2 yards for the 4T even. Most the tops I cut out of one direction prints took most of a whole yard and then I could get the pants out of the

    Hi I&#39;ve read, re-read the instructions and cut the facing pieces twice and I&#39;m still not doing something right. I&#39;m new to sewing and it just doesn&#39;t make sense to me. Please help!

  22. Chapel Taylor-Olsen

    I am also having trouble with the facings. I see the different lines on the Pajama Top front and back piece, but it just isn&#39;t making sense to me. Do I cut with the red line as the far left or the far right part of the facing? Can I make the top without facings?

    1. Anne LK

      I am (was?) having the same problem. I think that the front facing is the blue to the red line, and the back facing is the green to the black line.<br />You pretty much do need the facings otherwise you have nearly raw edges where you sew on the buttons and make buttonholes. If you look at the steps on her page, step 2 is sewing the facings together, and based on that photo I&#39;ve deduced

      1. Bec

        Brilliant! Thankyou 🙂

      2. michelle

        Thank you so much for this explanation! I too was having trouble knowing which lines to cut as the other sides of the facings (lots of material wasted before I found these comments to clarify). Thanks for explaining that the red lines and blue lines made the front facing and the green lines up to black line made back facing. I couldn’t manage to wrap my mind around how to get the right shapes/cuts based on the photo. Thanks so much for the pattern!!

    2. Paula

      I&#39;m confused with the facings too. I&#39;m not quite getting cuts like the picture. I&#39;m not sure HOW/WHERE to cut. :/

    3. Mrs. Belzer

      Glad I&#39;m not the only one struggling with the facing… too bad the directions and pattern were not more clear. Thanks for the suggestion Anne. That seems to make sense looking at what you described. Looks like I will have to recut the facings because mine do not look like the picture in step 2 either. 🙁

    …wow! Where did you get the nice fabrics?

  32. hayden

    I cannot understand the facings at all. Could you help? The picture you posted of step 2 doesn’t look like the pattern. Is there something I am missing??

  33. TL

    I see your pattern has “3/8″ seam allowance”. Does that mean the seam allowance is included, or do I need to cut an extra 3/8″ fabric? Also, what about the casing for the waist elastic for the pants, do I need extra fabric on top of the pattern for that? Excited to have found your pattern. My son wants to be man in the yellow hat for Halloween and I haven’t been able to find any bright yellow clothes. Any suggestions on trying to make the collar more like a dress shirt collar? I’m new to sewing clothes. Thank you!

  34. Judy

    I appreciate the free pattern and the PJs look so sweet on your kids. Is there any chance you could respond to the questions about the facing or the question about the 3/8 inch inseam being included in the pattern size? I’m having a horrible time with it as well and I’m not a beginner at all. The collar comes all the way to the ends of the front, which you say it shouldn’t. I’m thinking that I needed to add the 3/8 inch inseam to the pattern but I don’t want to waste any more fabric by re-cutting the whole thing. I’m living overseas and it’s very hard for me to get decent fabric, let alone flannel, so I was working with what I had on hand; I don’t have the privilege of starting over. Please explain the facing, or the seam allowance and how the collar should fit. Thank you.

    1. Shauna

      The 3/8″ seam allowance is included in the pattern you don’t need to add it. The collar shouldn’t come all the way to the end of the front, there are so many things that could have happened that cause this, the front could have been cut wrong, the pattern could have printed wrong, the fabrics may not be eased properly. The easiest way to fix this if everything seems to be fitting correctly is to just trim the collar a bit so it doesn’t come all the way to the end.

      1. Judy

        Thank you, I shortened the collar and it all seems to be working out now. I think there must be an issue with the way the pattern printed because the facing doesn’t seem to be as wide as it shows in your pictures. I’ve got some fabric on order and I’m going to try to make a few more of these PJs when it arrives. I’ll make a few adjustments to the pattern as I do. All in all though it’s a super easy pattern and it really took me no time at all to make these once I got the collar worked out. I’m so glad you offered this pattern online, I’ve been living in Turkey for the last year and a half (with another year and a half to go) and I can’t run out to the fabric store to buy a pattern whenever I get the urge to sew, so thank you for that!

      2. Becky

        Hello! Thank you so much for the pattern! I’ve made the pants and LOVE them. I’m now getting around to making the top, and I don’t think I’m understanding the instructions for sewing it together. I thought I had the collars sewn properly to each, the front/back piece & the front /back facing, but mine don’t seem to look like yours. My collar has raw edges and yours looks like it might be serged..? And I completely can’t seem to grasp how to sew them together. Is there something more descriptive you could recommend for me to figure out what I’m missing ? I have all the pieces cut and would really like to finish it 🙂 thank you!

        1. Bec

          Hi. Did you figure it out? Check out what ANNE LK says above. You cut between the blue and red lines for the front facing, and for the back facing from the green line UP to the black line. Really small pieces like in the picture. I’m going to use my incorrectly cut pieces to make another top – see if I can make it work. Otherwise it’s a huge waste of fabric. Fortunately I have a bit left over to do that. 🙂

      3. Heidi

        Hello! Have you been able to fix the size of the facing? It’s too small compared to the size in your pictures. The pattern printed properly, I measured the sample inch square. Otherwise, it’s a good pattern, thank you.

  37. Shailja

    Thank you so much for the Pattern. So generous of you. But I am really confused with the instructions of the shirt. About the Collar, if you sew as instructed above, won’t it have raw open edges? Shouldn’t both the pieces of collar first sewn together and turned around to have neat edges and then attached between Facing and Bodice?

    Thanks for the hard work you put into sharing this pattern with us! I included it on my blog in a roundup of boy-approved pajama patterns.

    I had a flannel fitted sheet leftover from a king sized sheet set I bought for quilt backing. These sewed up BEAUTIFULLY! I ripped out the collar a few times, but finally got it right. And I used snaps so my toddler could dress himself. Ended up using the same pattern to guesstimate a 12-18m pattern for my daughter too. I can’t wait for my kids to try on their matching jammies (might have made my husband some pants and me a nightdress to match too!). Thanks again for the generous pattern – I’m SO proud of how they turned out.

    I love the pattern for winter pj’s. I really like this pattern and will look into it further. Thank you for sharing.

    HI I really love this pattern! have made it twice for my niece. I was wondering how to make it smaller for a 2 year old?

  45. Cynthia Sears

    I too was confused by facings, I think I have it figured out but on page 8 there is a curve, is this the pleat in the girl sleeve you talk about? Also the narrow strip that says pants is that to be connected to the piece with the what looks like a plunging neckline, I’m very confused, perhaps a pic of the pieces laid out for cutting would be helpful

  46. Saundre

    . i just want to know what i did wrong my facing pieces does not look like in the picture.. i have cut on the red and on the green line but where do you go with your straight line?? I followed the solid black line as fornthe top pieces.. Please help..
