pyjamas

Glad you like the day lillies and the amaryllis.
The amaryllis are the ones I grow inside in winter. I leave them in pot, and bring them outside in the summer. They don't have leaves when they come out, but usually grow news ones during their vacations outside. Last year they also produced blooms, and it seems they'll do it again this year. When autumn comes, they have lost their leaves again. I repot them and on we go! I buy at least a new one each year, yes I'm addicted...
Yesterday was the last day of vacations, the one where I prepare everything for the week to come and finish as many projects as possible. The result is those pyjamas. I wanted some cotton ones, because it is so hot here. I wanted them to be bold too.

I've used McCall's M5769, view C for the top and view F for the pants. I'll make the robe when winter comes.
I chose this pattern because of the pockets: I need them to carry my IPod with me in the morning while I'm feeding all my assistants and cleaning the house before leaving for work :-)

This is too cute to wear just to bed. I love the colors and style. Your assistants are sure to appreciate their boss feeding them in this outfit.

Will you ever get out of bed? They are great.

The pyjamas are glorious, maybe I need some in those colours for the cold, windy day we have today.

:-) I love it! Now those are my kinda PJs! Ideal for chasing away the morning grumpies. Who could be grumpy in those?? Can't wait to see the robe!

Ah! So THAT'S what pockets in pyjamas are for! I love their vibrancy, Vero.

Such a pity only to wear these to go to bed. Maybe if I had pyjamas like those I would go to bed a bit earlier?
