Here they are! My silky, shiny, slinky, slippy, slide-y, red, white and blue Patriotic Pyjamas. Jubilee Jammies. If you’re interested in my Jubilee Jammie Journey, you can read about it in my Pyjama Party Posts. I’ve slept in nothing else since they were completed, surely a success in anyone’s book? Talking of books, I’d recommend that DK sewing manual in the main picture as well everything in the pile of bedtime reading.
Really looking forward to reading Karen’s fabulous blog in the next few days to see what everyone else has made. All together now “When’s the next Sewalong?”

Oh. My. God. How awesome are your pyjamas? They are so, so pretty. I love your books, too and the little slideshow. Do Polar Bears Get Lonely – what a great book title. Jubilee Jammies are to die for. The cute little bows… I think you’re all going to kill me with cuteness before the day is over.
Cheers me dear, they wouldn’t have been created without you so – respect!
Wow – very slinky! Those are fab!
Thanks! I liked yours too 🙂 Pennyx
I got that book, indeed is a great sewing reference.
Thanks, love the book, loving the pjs!
These are gorgeous pjs!
Thank you very much 🙂
Oh, those are ring-ading-ding! Great work- I look forward to more reading and sewing with you!
Thank you kindly. I’m hoping I can keep up the sewing… looking for another challenge!
Awesome work, and an intriguing book stack!
Very many thankyous! Px
Very pretty! Love the little bows too. And I remember those NS books, I used to own a couple ages ago..
Thanks! I’ve only read the first of the NS books, looking forward to the other 2 now. Did you enjoy them?
So lovely! Combining slinky and patriotic with aplomb 🙂
Thank you very much. I *love* your PJ set, so much so that the pattern is going to have to go on ‘the list’! Px
Love your PJs, especially the cute bows!
Also adding some books to my must read list, from you pile in the photos!
Thanks! I’ve started 3 of the books in that pile but not finished any of them. Quite like my sewing stash….
Wow those are very pretty! Love them!
Thank you very much!
Like you PJ’s, luv them!
Cheers, yours are fab too!
What a classic design. Just the right amount of blue, and I love the silky fabric choice. I am always looking for a good sewing book to add to my collection. Thanks!
Thanks, and no worries. That book is weighty and well illustrated with some project ideas at the back, I always get it out when I’m putting in a zip!
I want some like yours!! They look luxuriously comfortable & I reckon I’d do more reading in bed if I had some jubilee silkies ….
No, no, no, I want yours! And I’d like just a portion of your sewing and writing skills, please?!
Very elegant PJs! And I love the slideshow. How did you do it?
I don’t know if the slideshow is available in every theme, my WordPress ‘theme’ is called Structure. I add a slideshow this way, there may well be more efficient ways!
1) When you add an image into your post a call-out box appears. Follow the instructions for adding the image and when that’s done the image will appear in your post. WordPress will have also stored in the image in a Gallery. You can access this gallery using the tab menu that appears at the top of the iamge call-out box.
2) Go to the the little camera button and click on it as if you going to add another image. Instead of doing that look for the Gallery tab at the top.
3) When you are in the Gallery tab area , look at the bottom for the ‘Insert gallery’ (the images side by side) and the ‘Insert slideshow’ options.
I do find that I tend to add a load of images, ponder for bit, edit a few out and sometimes leave one image, or a slideshow or a gallery.
Hope that makes sense!
These are just adorable! Those bows – so cute! Love it. 🙂
Thanks so much! Px
I really like the red-white combo. It looks like great fabric too!
Also loving the bows. Well done!
Thanks very much, I’m really pleased with them 🙂
Wow, i really like your jubilee jammies! Well done! Mine was so boring… Yours makes me want to give PJs another go. 🙂
Ah, but yours are lovely and practical. I have a tendency to slide off the bed when wearing mine 😉
