Sew Liberated Nocturne Pajamas Pattern

Nocturne Sleepwear patterns

This top and pants set takes you from daytime adventures to nighttime cozy, depending on your fabric choice. The top features gathers, a V-notch at the neckline, and a slight high-low hem. Choose between three sleeve lengths, lengthen it into a tunic or nightgown—whatever you find most comfortable for lounging and/or sleeping. The pants have two waistband choices, a high rise with a paper bag detail at the waistline or a low rise that sits below the natural waist with a standard waistband. Both feature elastic in a casing at the waist, straight legs, and optional side seam pockets. This pattern is a digital PDF and includes sizes 0 through 34 (bust 31 inches to 58.5 inches, waist 25 inches to 52.5 inches, hips 33.5 inches to 61 inches).

The loose-fitting wrap robe in this sleepwear pattern set has set-in sleeves, side seam pockets, front gathers, bias facings, belt and thread loops. The bias-cut fitted camisole and slip have narrow shoulder straps and bust darts. Finally, the semifitted pants have an elastic waist and can be extended or shortened to your desired length. Women’s sizes 6 to 24 (bust 30.5 inches to 46 inches, waist 23 inches to 39 inches, hips 32.5 inches to 48 inches).

These classic pajamas feature details like piping and cuffs—and, yes, they have pockets. The top has an easy-to-sew soft collar and an oversized fit with dropped shoulders. The pants are high-waisted and feature a crotch gusset for extra comfort. Sizes range from A through M (bust 40 inches to 65.5 inches, hips 41.5 inches to 73.5 inches).

Simplicity 9218 Misses’, Men’s & Children’s Tunic & Pants

Simplicity 9218

Who doesn’t love matching family pajamas (besides my husband)? Make a set for everyone with a loose-fitting pullover tunic with back pleat into yoke, forward shoulder seams, and a shaped hem, plus pull-on, elastic waist pants. Sized for the whole family. Adult S to XL (chest/bust 30 inches to 48 inches, waist 31 inches to 53 inches) and Children’s S to XL (chest 22 inches to 29 inches, waist 20.5 inches to 24.5 inches, height 38 inches to 56 inches).

McCall’s 8430: Vintage Laura Ashley Robe and Nightgown

Vintage Laura Ashley Sleepwear Patterns

This authentic vintage reproduction McCall’s 1970s robe and nightgown sewing pattern by Laura Ashley is too cute. The high-waisted, front-wrap robe (not shown) has neck and sleeve ruffles. The sleeves have gathered caps and lower tucks. The matching high-waisted, back-buttoned nightgown has a ruffle in the waistline seam and a drawstring. Both pieces can be made knee- or full-length. The nightgown would work well as a sundress, too. Women’s sizes XS to M (bust 30.5 inches to 38 inches, waist 23 inches to 30 inches, hips 32.5 inches to 40 inches).

If you’ve made any of these, we’d love to see your work. Please consider submitting a Gallery post or or tag us on Instagram with #memadethreads.

    It's worth noting that the patterns listed above as Clotilde's are actually designed by Jan Bones, of sewinglingerie.com. I've made a few of Jan's designs, and they're really good. Not super-fancy, but well-drafted with straightforward, easy-to-sew instructions. Because these garments are meant for comfort as much as style, Jan carefully considers fit (the undies don't creep up!), and offers great ideas for smooth, non-chafing seams that don't require a serger.

    If you have a guy in your life who's particular about his underpinnings, check out Jan's patterns for men.

    These patterns by clotilde ARE NOT THEIRS they are from lingerie secrets by Jan Bones.

    Thank you Franb and Skymom for pointing that out! I've updated this write-up to include that information.

    Jan Bones used to come to Martha Pullen in Arlington,Tx. and give classes and sell patterns. Very good classes and patterns are so easy to sew. Where has she been for several years?? Would love to see her again at shows.

    Jan Bones has been at the Sewing Expo (March, Puyallup, WA) the last couple of years. I love the Nice Nightie and the Curvy Camisole patterns - possible to make them fit even the most Rubenesque woman :)

    Glad to hear about Jan Bones. Never heard of her. I'll be looking for her comfort lingerie patterns. I have been using Martha Pullen's comfort lingerie patterns. They work for me. Also I have been using ideas from Karen Morris' book, SEWING LINGERIE THAT FITS.
