Finished Project - McCalls 6252 Pajamas

Line ArtM6252, Misses'/Men's/Teen Boys' Tops, Pants And Dog Blanket

I bought this pattern a while ago and I love it because it comes with a dog outfit too! I have a basset hound and I have dreams of sewing us matching pjs. The only problem is that he is a dog's dog and won't wear any of the myriad of coats I already have for him...(or the boots, which he needs because his paw swells from the cold). Look at the tops on this pattern - I am thinking of making them up in sweatshirt fabric and wearing them outside the house.

So I decided to make myself some pj bottoms. I made them some time ago and am just getting around to posting it now. The pattern is excellent and true to size (I made pjs from another pattern a few years back and the sizing was so off, I decided to just throw out the pattern rather than take notes for next time.)

I used a flannel from my stash


I put in elastic because I hate drawstring only pjs.

But I did add a decorative drawstring!
Hems...on a lot of these type of patterns I never get around to finishing them but this time I did.

These pjs are a lot more fitted than many, but I prefer them that way.

McCalls 6252 - done and I will make them again! Oh, check out this post to enter in Friday's raffle for a vintage Burda magazine!

  1. Your pjs are so cute! I can't believe that pattern comes with a doggie outfit--I can totally see myself making that for my own pooch. I'm sure your pajamas are going to get a ton of wear!

    1. I want to make matching pajamas for me and my dog too! It is a great pattern. That hoodie could definitely be made in fleece and waorn out.

  2. Love your pajamas--very stylish. Being semi retired, I love a good pair of comfy pj's to putz around the house. I don't like drawstrings either--elastic is a better choice. I like the View A shirt pattern too.

    1. My approach to winter is comfy pjs, hot chocolate and movies.

  3. Dogs don't know what's good for them! I like your approach to winter. In fact, that's pretty much my approach all year!
