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!

Near the Southeastern corner of Manitoba, there is nearly 3000 square kilometers that make up the Sandilands Provincial Forest.  The forest here grows in dry sandy soil that is scattered throughout with wetlands and exposed sand hills.  Historically used for logging and pulp production, it is now managed forest and is mostly known for quiet trail systems that appeal to hikers, cyclists, horseback riders, and cross-country skiers.
