Cozy and comfortable, the Sandiland PJs were inspired by the classic nightshirt of the 16th-18th centuries but with the modern addition of a simple knit neckband.  The style features a curved split hem and the choice of either a crew neck or a v-neck, and the pants have the option of inseam pockets.
This is a non-gendered pattern including a new EXTENDED size range, from kids size 2-10 plus four additional teen/tween sizes!  Make it with flannel for keeping warm in winter weather, or use regular cotton or double gauze for a light and airy summer set. 

Want more options, like short sleeves or cuffs?  All the parts from the Sandilands PJs can be mix-&-matched with the Simcoe Pajamas!

    I absolutely adore this nightgown! It is the perfect length and the curved split hem is precious. This nightgown has a vintage feel to it that I love. I used flannel for all but the neckband, that was cotton lycra. The directions were clear and easy to follow. I made the v-neck variation for both my girls, and they love their new nightgowns. I will be making more as gifts for Christmas. Thank you for such a great pattern!
