The Cottage Mama pattern review - Claire Pajamas

I was recently able to test the newest pattern from The Cottage Mama called the Claire Pajamas. This is a great piece going into fall. It has options for long or short sleeves as wells as a nightgown or top and pants option. The Claire Pajama Pattern includes size 6 Month through 10 Years as well as 18″ doll pattern. We are working on a matching doll gown next.

This is Maddie, age 7, in the size 10 long sleeve gown that I made from a Target fitted sheet. I decided to go with a sheet since the size 10 takes 3.5 yards of fabric and I already had the sheet on hand. She loves how comfortable it is and I love how easy it came together and how easy it is to wash and wear.

The bib front is such an adorable addition and the instructions make it really easy to put together. I used some sheet scraps to make matching fabric covered buttons. If you've never tried those you should pick some up. You will never have to worry about having the right button to match what you are making and they come in quite a few different sizes.

As always, I'm going to leave you with Maddie's chosen pose. She said we needed a picture to show everyone that this is pajamas so they wouldn't think it was a dress. ;)


  1. Adorable. I love that you used a sheet for the fabric. I hope she has sweet dreams while wearing this.

    1. She was worried it would be to hot for summer but the sheets are nice and thin and perfect for cool summer nights. :)
