Book Giveaway: ‘The Perfect Pajama’

The Perfect Pajama by Kristina Nilsson and Jennifer Pirtle offers creative bedtime attire patterns and instructions.

The Perfect Pajama by Kristina Nilsson and Jennifer Pirtle (Cico Books) combines clear illustrations, concise instruction and creative garment design for nightwear and accessories. It includes a complete set of full-sized patterns necessary to make any of the items shown. These are not simply pajamas, nightgowns, robes and other sleep accessories; rather the designs take bedroom wear from boring to amazing. Jazz up a classic pair of pajamas with attractive and unusual embellishments and other ingenious details. Every project includes well-illustrated step-by-step instructions, as well as beautiful close-up photography. A comprehensive technique section gives details about how to execute each of the skills you’ll need to know. The garments include adorable nightwear for children, women’s bedroom attire ranging from sexy-glamorous to classic fun, garments for men, as well as bedtime accessories like slippers and eye masks.

This is a wonderful book for any sewer. If you’re thinking about making gifts for those on your holiday list, consider pajamas because there are fewer fitting concerns to worry about. If you’re in need of a gift for someone who sews but doesn’t consider herself an advanced sewer just yet, this book would make a fabulous gift. If you’re lucky, you might be able to win a copy for yourself or a friend!

    PJ's are always great for lounging and make fabulous gifts. I still remember when my Grandma made PJ's for my cousins and I one Christmas. They were flannelete nightgowns for the older girls (6 & 7 year olds) and 2 pc for the younger ones. All from the same print! With the inspiration from a book like these surely I could make some PJ's my daughter and daughter-in-law would love!

    Hi, Happy Holidays everyone!
    I just got out my warmer PJs and noticed how thin the flannel had become. Time to make some new ones and this book would be perfect. Love this site.

    Last year my resolution was to fill my entire wardrobe (undergarments included) with things made by me. So far this is going pretty well but I've started to notice that my sleepwear isn't nearly as fun as it could be. This book looks really cool.

    Making lingerie has been my goal this year. From making - and fitting - bras for all four of my daughters, to sewing beautiful pajamas, I'm learning so much and having so much fun. I have never seen this book before, but it sounds very intriguing!
