    pink (day) PJs

    I made a day PJ suit for my daughter from pink cotton linen using this jacket pattern. It looks good and my daughter loves it. I bound the seams with homemade bias from mauve cotton voile. The design and fit is good and instructions clear. Paper Theory patterns (from a NZ designer) have all worked well for me. Highly recommended. Fast delivery from Paper Scissors Frock!
