Have you seen Tasia’s new Tofino pants pattern? You can imagine how thrilled I was when I was chosen to be one of the testers…I had tried before but never managed to be in the shortlist…I blamed it on the time difference…she usually sends the email when it’s night-time in Europe and by the time I see it other people have replied…I bet there are thousands of us on the list so it’s hard for her to choose.
The pattern was quite fast to make (thankfully because it came around Easter break when I was travelling)…Unfortunately I didn’t have time for the piping…so I opted for flat bias binding instead. What’s neat about Tofino pattern is that Tasia gives you the pattern piece for the bias binding…so you don’t have to draw lines yourself. And the process is much faster. I didn’t make my own bias binding though as I had just been given a roll!
The polkadot fabric was originally meant for a Julia Roberts horse race dress (from Pretty Woman)…but it was perfect for pajama pants and it was in my stash so…I guess I can still wear the pants to the races right? They are very stylish! I actually have some left and I should be able to make a sleeveless top out of it.
The pants are very comfy and I have been using them regularly. They are wider than my usual lounge pants but I could slim them the next pair down.
Will you be joining Karen’s Pajama Party sew-along? It’s starting on June 3.
