Sewing Margot

So my first sewing project of the year was the Margot pyjamas from Tilly and the Buttons ‘Love at First Stitch’, and what a way to start – I am so pleased with these! These are the first trousers I’ve ever made, and they turned out so well! It was a great pattern to learn from, with clear instructions and diagrams to guide throughout. 


The decision to use the floral fabric from my stash was definitely a good shout for these pyjama bottoms. It was a real Goldilocks moment of it being just right. The material wasn’t slippy or stretchy which made it easy to work with, and they’re a good weight for wearing as multi-seasonal pyjamas. I got the fabric from The Man Outside Sainsbury’s (TMOS) for £4 a metre – such a bargain! I didn’t ask what it was (definitely something I need to start doing!) but I’d hazard a guess at a poly-cotton blend due to the satiny sheen on the right side. That could be a terrible shout, if you think from my description you know what it is, please let me know 🙂



I’m definitely going to use this pattern again in the near future. I’m already thinking about making a short pair in a bright summer floral, although that seems rather optimistic as I sit here writing this as Storm Doris rages on outside!

With this make complete I can tick off the first of my make nine – yay! I actually finished these in January, but I found taking photos of myself trying to show one of my makes quite awkward/cringey so put it off for ages. Hopefully that will get easier as time goes on!

Up next…my Great British Sewing Bee apron!
