Zebra pajamas

So the summer is long gone from my part of the world. The autumn is in full swing and I am sure first snow isn't that far away. The weather is... gray. Bleh! And it gets dark so damn soon!
In hopes to bring at least some "heat" into this soggy weather I made these zebra print pajamas!

Yes I am sharing pajamas with you!!!

I made two sets, using the same fabric - one long and one short. Bottoms pattern is self drafted and its a one piece leg, without side seams. 
I bought this viscose/cotton blend jersey initially for a bodycon summer dress, but lets face it, my body isn't that fit to wear a bodycon style! And to keep things less monochrome I used some fuchsia pink lace from my stash.

Sewing for him - Black cargo pants

You know how they say you can't teach new tricks to old dog? 100% true! 
The man has been wearing cargo pants for half of his life and try as I may, I can't get him out of them! I've used every trick in my books to coax and encourage him to wear... well regular pants. Jeans... but no! 

His favourite black pair finally gave up this summer. There was nothing to salvage, except the design. So I pulled out the pant sloper I've drafted for him and copied his old RTW pants.
