Hello! I just up and left you last week, didn't I? Took a quick trip out to Arizona with hubs for a long weekend of sitting by the pool and taking naps whenever I felt like it. Sound like heaven? Oh, it was. My in-laws came up to watch the girls, and now my mom is here helping me while my partner in crime stayed behind to play some golf this week.
They're both so deserving of something special on Mother's Day. Naturally, last week I was busy scurrying about getting some gifts ready. Enter the vintage sheet pj set. Not original, I know. (I gave my sister I set for her birthday last September) But, be honest, who can resist soft comfy pjs? (Simplicity 9505 for tops and bottoms)
This first set was for my Mother in law -- a tunic style top with her pj pants. I loved how the wild floral sheet contrasted with the delicate white and green pillowcase print. I didn't get to see these on her, but she left a note saying they were comfy... I guess it fit ok.
My mom got a more muted pink and gold palette, along with a babydoll-esque top with cap sleeves. Her top was cut from the gold sheet and has a band of pink around the bottom, and the pants, pink with a band of gold around the hem.
She's been wearing them this week and they look so comfy.
The thing about pjs is they don't really photograph well. They sort of lie there like a crumpled heap on the bed or droop from a hanger. I also finished these late on Thursday night, so the lighting was very, very poor. I'm sorry there aren't any good quality shots; however, I'm going to guess you all have a pretty good idea what nightwear looks like, so that's ok. ;)
