I love making clothes to lounge about the house in, L♥VE I tell you. I don't know if it is because the pressure is off, if I am making things only my family will see, I don't feel the need to be as perfect. Possibly. Then again, I live a fairly dull life, (I'm not complaining, if I wanted excitement I would go get me some), and I wear casual/lounge clothes more than almost anything else. A combination of the two perhaps. Let's go with that.
After my recent make of Loes Hinse Cruise Pants (cropped version), I thought they would also make perfect pajamas (notice how I am demonstrating my cleverness in using both spelling of PJ's, oh wait a third version too, goodness, I am gifted). They are easy, fast and fit like a dream. Exactly what one wants in lounge wear.
So I went stash shopping in the fabric closet of requirement and found Pepto Pink Linen! Why was Pepto Pink Linen in my stash I asked myself? Myself had no idea. You see, I don't wear light pink. Ever. Even as a child. So why on earth did I buy it? It must have been cheap. I washed and dried the fabric three times in hot water and put it in the dryer before cutting. It made such a difference to the feel, it's like a completely different fabric. Much improved, not as crisp and wrinkly, and I am not likely to iron these.
I love them. Worn together they have the look of hospital scrubs, not exactly what I was going for, so I tend not to wear them together, I don't sleep in bottoms any way, they are too warm for me, so I sleep in the top and wear the bottoms with a t-shirt. The top is OOP Vogue 2148 and as mentioned above the bottoms are Loes Hinse Cruise Pants. Win.
I feel I need to explain/apologise for the lack of photos of me wearing garments. I really hate having my photo taken, even if I am the one doing it. I am trying hard to get over it and I promise I or at least my body will make an appearance soon. Bear with me.
