Interfacing: 0.20 fusible interfacing
Pattern: McCall's 6600

This pattern has been in my stash for roughly the same amount of time as the fabric--a couple of years now. I didn't purchase the two items with plans to make them together, it just came about when I saw Sara's version over on her blog, Mixed Emotions and started shopping for fabric in my stash. I like Sara's unbelted relax fit. And goodness knows that I love a plaid!
I goofed on the placement of the pockets. Placed at ten and a half inches below the side armhole they sit too low when I try it on belt-less style. If I wear a belt and bellow the top portion I can bring up the pockets to a wearable placement. The trouble with wearing a belt is that it looks awful from the back view. Something about a generous rear, plaids and that back pleat just makes my back end look extra wide.
If I knew from the start that I was making a pair of pajamas I wouldn't have taken the time to contrast the collar stand, the underside of the collar and the underside of the cuffs with navy sateen.
The buttons have been in my stash for over a decade. I picked up a box of these when Eaton's was liquidating all their stock and store fixtures. I know they're fancier than my Canadian chic fabric but that's how I'm going to roll on this one.
