The Best Fabrics for Sewing Pajamas!


We recently launched the Fran Pajamas and now we just can't put on regular clothes! Once you've had PJs this comfy, it's hard to justify wearing anything else. In the spirit of "not wearing real clothes till spring" we've put together the ultimate PJ fabric guide to help you get your cozy on (and maybe sew your new travel suit, party gear, and business attire – if your top and bottom match you are basically wearing black tie and that's just facts).

Cozy Flannel

If you're looking for a cozy winter set of PJs there is nothing like flannel. Warm and soft, flannel gets better with every wear! Available in a variety of weights, we especially love double-faced or heftier weights for that "I'm basically wearing a weighted blanket" feeling in the winter.

Sleek + Chic Prints

We love a chic and graphic print to create a Gucci inspired PJ set. Slip into these silky bad boys next time you want to feel RICH! Show up to the gallery opening in an all-over print PJ set and have everyone asking, "WHO IS THAT??" Not for the faint of heart. Prepare to be stopped in your tracks...

Fresh Florals

If soft florals are more your vibe try a pretty set like these poppy print ones. Scale can make a huge difference with prints; a small floral will give you that Liberty of London look, while a large-scale print will feel more modern and fashion-forward.

Menswear Inspired

For a traditional menswear-inspired PJ we look at cotton and shirting fabrics. More crisp fabrics will give your PJs a bit more structure as well as being more breathable. If you sleep hot, cotton is for you!

We've also created fabric kits for Fran using a lovely and fairly heft cotton shirting, get 'em while supplies last. We are still waiting on a long-delayed fabric shipment for our printed sample, but the kit for that set should be coming in January!
