The Agnes Pyjama Set is a relaxed loungewear suit that comes with the option of shorts or long trousers. The shorts/trousers are designed to sit high on your natural waist with an elasticated waistband and feature no side seam so are very simple and fast to sew. The shirt is very oversized with batwing sleeves and no waist definition. It has a convertible collar with a button up front and patch pockets.
This pattern was designed especially for woven, light to medium weight fabrics like Cotton Lawn, Poplin, Linen or Ramie. It would work well in fabrics that are as light as a Cotton Voile or Double Gauze but would also look great as an outerwear set made in medium to heavy fabrics like Cotton Drill, Canvas and even a soft Denim.
The pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner. The majority of the garment is straightforward, however you will need to be able attach a collar and create buttonholes.
The pattern is available in sizes 6-28. All sizes are included with your purchase.
