Beach season is fast approaching in my part of the world. Are you looking for inspiration for a new beach outfit this year, one you can sew yourself?
If you are ready for something totally Glam, yet super comfortable and providing sun protection consider....Beach Pajamas!!
First worn in the 1920's, Beach Pajamas were just wide leg pants and a cute top, perhaps with a daring open back.
Below are some pictures and quotes from an article about this 'new' outfit.
( to read the whole article click here Glamour of the Beach Pajama )
"Before the bikini, fashionable ladies donned “beach pyjamas” all along the world’s most stylish coastal towns. The swishy palazzo-like pants and jumpsuit styles shocked the public in the interwar years, while we, on the other side of the second millennium, find some serious inspiration".
Now we have our inspiration, let me introduce you to the Samara Pant pattern by Itch to Stitch . With this pattern you will be able to begin creating your very own Beach Pajamas, that can be worn on their own or over a swimsuit as a cover-up.
Samara Pants Features
-Wide Legs that flare from the hip down
-Straight Waistband sits at narrowest part of waist ( high waisted)
-Side Invisible Zipper closure
For Beach Pajamas it is a good idea to choose a breathable fabric like rayon, or even silk if so inclined. Just be sure whatever fabric you choose has beautiful fluid drape to it.
Chose the length you prefer; full, ankle, 3/4.
The feel of the Samara Pants on is utterly divine...lighter than a whisper, elegantly feminine, immensely comfortable!
