Yesteryear fabrics that make you go, ngwaw!

I fell deeply in love with the nostalgic fabrics I was seeing in the op'shop shelves.

Given a pair of designer PJ bottoms for christmas several years earlier I knew what it meant to wear till thin your favourite snuggle wear. Sadly, there came a day when the waistband and the leg no longer connected.

It was over!

I spent a quiet weekend styling another couple of pair out of some much loved retro sheets.

Then, I heard the telling of the lover who bought my friend a pair of commercial pajamas, made in a tiny person nation somewhere.... sadly there was not enough pajama to snuggle her ample figure. 


This made me think!  Jarma Bums for every bum!

Jarma Bums are

freeform sewing
