So, I decided that this time I would make the Norah to give away. And since I sew pajamas as gifts for Christmas, I decided that there needed to be Norah Pajamas!
(*baby girl literally had these on for 5 minutes for the pictures - I didn't want anything to happen to them before I shipped them off to a special birthday girl in the family.)
This pattern is so versatile that you can do absolutely anything with it!!! For these pajamas, I pulled some adorable flannel from my stash. I love the look of the contrasting sleeve and collar, and I thought that would work well for the pajamas.
In lieu of lining the top, I made a facing for the back opening and then added bias strip ties for the closure. (The flannel bias tape is a bit thick, so I think when I make more of these, I will use a satin ribbon or cotton bias tape for the ties).
I went with the Top length because I thought it would look best with pants. From my own experience, I think all toddlers in diapers NEED to wear bottoms over their diapers - so diaper covers in summer and leggings or pants in winter. You just don't want to risk it!!!
I am beyond THRILLED with how these turned out - I momentarily thought of keeping them for myself, but I love my little niece and I hope she will love them!
If you don't own the pattern yet - GET IT NOW!!! You will love the variety of things that you can do with this pattern.
