Los Angeles is pretty much summer weather for 10 months of the year so when those 2 months of winter show up it’s a tough adjustment. My wardrobe has plenty of me-made nighttime garments for the summer months but it wasn’t until it got cold that I realized I only had one pair of pajama pants that wasn’t horribly frayed and worn out. So of course, I had to put pajamas on my 2017 Make Nine list. Pajama bottoms are one of those easy projects that even a beginner can make which makes them seem a little boring. But those boring things are often the most useful. So while I could have added another fun dress to my list, I love having a project for something that I actually really need and can use right away. Plus, because it's easy that means I already have one thing checked off my list.
