With silk left over from other projects I made a couple of shortie pyjama pants for dds, same basic pattern, different sizes. There was a bit of cheating in the layouts to get the pieces out of the remaining fabric. I dovetailed the pattern on the burgundy satin, luckily it didn’t shade.
There are only two pieces to the pattern, with the waist folded over and elasticated. I used narrow french seams.
This would be an ideal beginner pattern. With extra ease in the hip measurement, elasticated waist and deeper crotch depth there’s not the same fitting problems as daywear . (Maybe made in something less slippery, tana lawn? )
When I’d finished these I had a waste not want not moment and squeezed strappy tops out of the teeny scraps, putting in some black satin to stretch the red.
There’s something therapeutic about working with silk isn’t there? A microtex needle, lace pins and it’s sorted.
