Wide legged trousers are mind blowing!

The husband has wanted a new dressing gown and pyjamas set for a while now. He was prepared to pay a great deal to get a comfortable and good looking one, but I told him no, I can make one for him. We browsed through men’s pyjama patterns and this Vogue pattern was the one he was most pleased with. It has a wide collar, pockets and interesting piping details for the dressing gown, and the pyjamas were what pyjamas for a man […]

I purchased the pattern when it came […]
