Peek-a-Boo Pajamas patterns blog tour

16 Nov

This winter I would like to sew pajamas for the kids, in fact I would like to sew for the whole family for Christmas … but since I had never sewn pajamas, I did not decide.

The occasion came from the Boys in Pajamas Blog Tour sponsored by Peek-a-Boo pattern shop and organized by Made for little gents since the beginning of October (thank you very much Sunni!)

Este invierno me gustaría coser pijamas para los peques, de hecho me gustaría coser para toda la familia por navidad.. pero como nunca había cosido pijamas, no me decidía.

La ocasión vino de la mano de Boys in Pajamas Blog Tour patrocinado por Peek-a-Boo pattern shop y organizado por Made for little gents desde principios de octubre (muchas gracias Sunni!)

The Tour consists of a group of seamstresses testing pajama patterns from the Peek-a-Boo brand to give our opinion about them. I decided on the Classic Zipper Pj pattern, a classic zip-up pajama with feet, because the little one in the house loves this type of pajamas and with its height, it is not easy to find them in stores anymore … and less of fleece, like the wants.

El Tour consiste en que un grupo de costureras probamos patrones de pijamas de la marca Peek-a-Boo para dar nuestra opinión sobre ellos. Yo me decidí por el patrón Classic Zipper Pj un clásico pijama de cremallera con pies, porque el peque de la casa adora este tipo de pijamas y con su altura, ya no es fácil encontrarlos en tiendas.. y menos de forro polar, como el quiere.

Pattern Pros: The pattern covers sizes from newborn to 10-12 years. It offers three variants: short, long, with or without feet. It comes in layers so you can select the one you need. It is accompanied by a tutorial with color photographs, detailed. There is the possibility of following a video tutorial on YouTube if you have any doubts. The pieces fit perfectly and it is easy and fast to sew. Includes a view for the zipper, ideal to protect from the friction of the zipper.

Pros del patrón: El patrón cubre las tallas des de recién nacido a 10-12 años. Ofrece tres variantes: corto, largo, con o sin pies. Viene en capas así que puedes seleccionar la que necesitas. Se acompaña un tutorial con fotografías a color, detallado. Existe la posibilidad de seguir un video tutorial en YouTube si tienes dudas. Las piezas encajan perfectamente y resulta fácil y rápido de coser. Incluye una vista para la cremallera, ideal para proteger de los roces de la cremallera.

Cons: the cuffs and the view of the zipper is not a printed piece. You should draw it with the measurements of the size or your zipper length.

Personally I think that the tutorial does not follow a completely logical order for my taste, however, it is easy to find the step you need because it is very visual.

You tube tutorial does not follow the same order as the paper tutorial, I think that for someone without experience it can be messy, but once you decide which one to follow, it is certainly a help that is appreciated.

Contras: los puños y la vista de la cremallera no es una pieza impresa sino que la debes dibujar tu con las medidas de la talla o de tu cremallera.

Personalmente me parece que el tutorial no sigue un orden del todo lógico para mi gusto, no obstante, es fácil buscar el paso que necesitas porque es muy visual.

El tutorial de you tube no sigue el mismo orden que el tutorial, yo creo que para alguien sin experiencia puede ser lioso, pero una vez decidas cuál vas a seguir, sin duda es una ayuda que se agradece.

The pattern is wide but my little is like a noodle .. so next time I think I will reduce size keeping the length so that it fits more snug. Mister bears and above all the model in question are more than happy with the result, which is size 5 without any modification.

El patrón me resulta ancho pero mi peque es como un fideo.. así que la próxima vez creo que reduciré talla manteniendo el largo para que le quede más ceñido. El barbas de la casa y sobretodo el modelo en cuestión están más que encantados con el resultado, que es la talla 5 sin modificación ninguna.

Will I repeat the pattern? Without hesitation. Little A has already asked for another one for her, they love to wear feet, and I love that they are one piece pajama.

Do I recommend it as a beginner pattern? More o less. Because the difficulty of the pattern is the piece of the crotch, the zipper and the feet, and with the YouTube video I think it can be followed without difficulty.

¿Repetiré el patrón? Sin dudarlo. La peque A ya ha pedido otro igual para ella, les encantan que lleven pies, y a mi me encanta que sean una sola pieza.

¿Aconsejo el patrón para principiantes? Más o menos. Porque la dificultad del patrón son la pieza de la entrepierna, la cremallera y los pies, y con el video de YouTube creo que se puede seguir sin dificultad.
