Sew your first pyjama pants

Lounge in style in your me-made pyjama bottoms or shorts. Jaimie is an ideal first sewing project for newbies, or a quick and satisfying make for existing stitch addicts.

Choose between full-length pyjama bottoms or flirty boyfriend shorts, with optional drawstring detail. The low-rise, elasticated waist and relaxed-fit leg make these PJs oh so comfy to wear. You’ll never want to get dressed when you’re wearing your Jaimie jammies!

Jaimie includes Tilly and the Buttons’ award-winning beginner-friendly instructions, with colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself. Plus you can sew along with Tilly with the free video tutorial!
