Linen Carolyn Pajamas for Summer

I made a pair of linen pajamas for summer. The pattern is the Carolyn Pajamas from Closet Case Patterns. I made View C, which has shorts and a short-sleeved shirt. 

I love these! I usually sleep in oversized t-shirts that my husband gets free from work and comfy shorts that I also use for working out. It's nice to have real pajamas! I would love to make a few more sets and wear them every night. But there are so many other things to sew, I doubt I will make a full pj wardrobe this summer. 

I especially love the shorts. Every time I wake up wearing them, I want to keep them on all day. I've started sewing a knee-length pair in a different linen fabric. I also want to make some daytime shorts using this pattern, lengthening it by an inch or two.

I decided to use snaps instead of putting on buttons, and I love the little pop of red. I don't use snaps very often, and it was pretty cool how fast they install. I don't mind sewing buttonholes and buttons, but it does take a lot longer than attaching snaps. Plus it's fun to hammer the snaps. I used this snap setter and it worked perfectly. 

This is the linen I used: Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed Classic Wovens Linen Stripes Black Fabric from It's great for keeping cool and comfortable to sleep in.

 Do you like making pajamas? Have any favorite patterns I should try?
