Panda Print PJ Top

I used the pattern from July 2016 Prima Magazine* to make this matching top for the PJ pants.
 The Prima patterns are often quite simple, and as a subscriber I get the pattern every month autmatically. This one is for a V neck top or dress with several variations. Mine is slightly shorter than the one with ties.
Again due to fabric limitations I have had to ignore any attempt at pattern matching or pleasing pattern placement so have various half pandas which is a slight shame. However it will not stop me enjoying wearing them one bit.

I used purple buttons from the stash which toned quite well with the purple spots between the pandas. I hand sewed them on using matching purple thread so that they have a solid purple circle appearance.

*Prima magazine is a UK general women's magazine which includes a simple free pattern every month. Subscribers get it included with the pattern, but I think if you buy it from the paper shop you have to send off for the pattern and pay postage.

I miss the Prima UK magazine patterns! I made quite a few pieces of garment from there previously. I love this fabric. It makes me smile just looking at it! You must have very joyous sweet dreams wearing them!
