New Pattern Available!
#127 Modern Peignoir Ensemble
Combine a gorgeous robe and flowy pants for a nighttime ensemble too pretty to wear just for bed.
The robe or topper will look as good with jeans and a T‑shirt as it will for relaxing at bedtime. Made entirely on the serger, it features a front band, tie belt, drop shoulder and wide "faux" cuffs. 4‑thread seaming, secured ends, unique straight hemming, and belt points will all be shown – skills that will translate handily into future projects.
The flowy no-side-seam pants have many possibilities. Leave them wide at the hem or turn them into a jogger-style hem. The waist is a comfy elastic and can be made with or without a ruffly top edging. Cut them shorter, and you have adorable "shorties"! Made with a serger and a sewing machine, you won’t believe how fast these go together. And who says you can’t make them into daytime beachy pants? Nobody!
I have had the unique opportunity to work with hundreds of women over the years to help them achieve a good fit from commercial patterns. While doing this, I found that many of the pattern adjustments we were doing were consistent for the majority of women. As a result, the patterns have been designed to reflect these common changes, resulting in less changes to the pattern and garment during the construction process. Commercial patterns go through a computer drafting program that doesn't allow for these common changes to be made. Pamela's Patterns are hand drafted with many prototypes before they go into production. I hope you enjoy these patterns as much as I enjoyed making them!
