HAPPINESS IS.... SECRET PYJAMAS! THE PERFECT OUTFIT FOR LOCKDOWN
Hi! Welcome to my first EVER blog post...I hope you enjoy!
When I had a quick look on The Rag Shop’s website, I was spoilt for choice but was immediately drawn to this super soft looking alpine sweatshirt fabric in copper. And wow, it really is soft, it’s almost fur like in texture! The colour is lovely and very fitting for autumn, right up my street. Lucky for me, it was in stock! Yay! There are plenty of other colours to choose from, but I felt like my autumn wardrobe could use an injection of colour.
With the impending second lockdown, the obvious thought for this fabric was something comfy and cosy. Loungewear of course! I mean, who doesn’t want anything more than to slob, sorry, laze around in joggers and a sweater right now. It just helps when they’re made matching in the same lovely fabric.
I decided on my fave trusty Megan Nielsen Jarrah sweater (yes, another one!) and the ever-popular True Bias Hudson Pants. They seemed like the perfect combo for working from home again. After months of elasticated waistbands and then having to squeeze those extra pounds into more work suitable attire - I am welcoming this lockdown with open arms - in terms of clothing choices anyway!
As soon as the fabric arrived, it went straight in the wash! This is something I never used to do but trust me, it’s worth it...I’ve sadly learned the hard way more than once.
The fabric was beautiful to handle and sewed like a dream. I used the main fabric for the cuffs and waistband and cord from my stash for the waist tie.
Having never made the Hudson pants before, I was a bit nervous about the fit but there was no need and regardless, sewing anything in this fabric would give you the all the cosy feels.
Anyway, you’ll find me coordinating with my living room in my not so #secretpyjamas for the foreseeable. Thank you so much to Steph for letting me have the opportunity to feature as a guest blogger (can I say that’s what I am now??)
Stay safe everyone.
