Paper Theory - Agnes PJs
This product is currently sold out.
The Agnes Pyjama Set is a relaxed loungewear suit that comes with the option of shorts or long trousers. The shorts/trousers are designed to sit high on your natural waist with an elasticated waistband and feature no side seam so are very simple and fast to sew. The shirt is very oversized with batwing sleeves and no waist definition. It has a convertible collar with a button up front and patch pockets.
Suggested fabrics: This pattern was designed especially for woven, light to medium weight fabrics like cotton lawn, poplin, linen or ramie. It would work well in fabrics that are as light as a cotton voile or double gauze but would also look great as an outerwear set made in medium to heavy fabrics like cotton drill or canvas and even a soft denim.
Fabric requirements: All calculations are on a single lay. If you want to cut your fabric on the fold, increase consumption by 35 cm (0.4 yd) for all sizes.
Shirt: 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 1.85 – 2.65 m (2.02 – 2.90 yd) // 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 1.56 – 2.14 m (1.70 – 2.34 yd).
Shorts: 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 0.96 – 1.14 m (1.05 – 1.25 yd) // 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 0.51 – 1.08 m (0.56 – 1.18 yd).
Trousers: 115 cm (45″) wide fabric: 2.38 – 2.55 m (2.60 – 2.79 yd) // 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 1.21 – 2.55 m (1.33 – 2.78 yd).
Sizing: UK 6 – 28. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
This pattern was drafted for someone who is 170 cm (5’7″) tall.
Paper Theory patterns generally have a very relaxed and oversized fit and bust cup size is not as important as total chest measurement. Many people who regularly make full bust adjustments or small bust adjustments for other pattern companies find they do not need to with Paper Theory patterns if they are within two cup sizes either up or down. As a rough guide, shirt sizes 6 – 18 are drafted for a C cup, and sizes 20 – 28 are drafted with a D cup in mind.
Notions: Thread; fusible interfacing; 32 mm (1 1/4″) wide elastic for the shorts/trousers; 5 buttons for the shirt, 24L (15 mm/5/8″) but slightly bigger or smaller would be fine.
