Well, almost like Gucci’s.
Here’s my ode to a high fashion look that I occasionally become obsessed with. This time it’s a weirdly attractive set of short jammies that is photographed on the model as if she’s ready to step out in public.
Well, below is my version. Heh.
The entire look is not completely nailed down, but I think I got the spirit — in the pink fabric (mine’s a print, as you can see) and the broderie anglaise type cuffs. The Gucci version has additional white broderie anglaise on the yoke and part of the upper sleeve; it balances everything out pretty well. I, on the other hand, called it quits after the pajama bottoms. After 16 eyelets, I called it a project.
This pair of pj bottoms used two sewing accessories that I retrieved from deep inside the stash. The eyelet-making accessory was featured in a previous post; and the scallop ruler was unearthed to evenly mark the cuff edges. This ruler has more markings than I knew, to help with accurate markings. It will be used again, for sure.
Besides, my current nightwear is extremely worn out! I need new ones which are presentable enough to wear all day. So this pair of jammies was overly due.
Stay cool, friends! Stay healthy and take care of yourself and yours.
