Hudsons + Astair

I thought I'd test the French Navy Astair Tee and the True Bias Hudson Pant out by making pyjamas.

I made them in the summer and had to wait a few weeks until it was cool enough to wear them.  I forget where the t-shirt fabric is from, but it is quite a beefy cotton spandex.  The Hudsons are made from a beautiful quality cotton spandex knit from Fabulous Fabrics.  The striped cotton ribbing is from Spotlight, leftover from another project.

I sewed a double pocket, but I am thinking of removing it because the shirt is so comfy that I might wear it for everyday, not just pjs.

The method of adding the ribbing to the pocket was a new-to-me technique.  

Both patterns are winners, so I will be making more of them.


  1. I too am a pyjama pattern tester! It’s just one of the best ways of seeing how garments are going to fit and work for you with little risk. Thanks again for a great blog.

    1. Thanks Debbie...pyjamas often end up being the most-wears-per-item garments as well :)

  2. Looks great! And so comfortable and snuggly and that word - hygge. Mmm.
