Fabric suggestions:

Light to medium weight woven fabrics are best for the Ultimate Pyjamas. As you will be sleeping in them, we suggest sticking to natural fibres to keep your pyjamas soft and breathable. Think cotton lawn, brushed cotton, cotton fleece, flannel, seersucker, or even a lovely rayon if you’re feeling more adventurous.

Fabric quantities:

Fabric 45”/115cm wide or wider

All sizes: 2.5m

Fabric 60”/150cm wide or wider

All sizes = 2.5m

It’s a good idea to have pre-washed your fabric so that you know the shrinking is done before you sew a garment. This is especially important for stretch fabrics! Wash the fabric on the temperature you normally wash your clothes, or a bit higher. If you are buying the fabric on the day of the class, you can use our steam iron to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting.

If you have any questions about how much fabric you’ll need, come into the shop or email us and we’ll be able to assist you.

 WHO IS THIS CLASS SUITABLE FOR?
