McCalls 7497

There has been big decluttering and cleaning going on here. I bought  The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up quite a while ago and have been putting off reading it, but Chris read it last week and now he's motivated to sort the house so now I'm reading it.
I've sorted some of the girl's clothes and realised they really need some more pyjamas. Olive chose some fabric (pink of course) from Spotlight and McCalls 7497.
I cut a size 4 for the top and bottom. I made a couple of changes - I hemmed the sleeves instead of using bias binding and I made my own bias binding. I also applied it differently - I sewed it to the wrong side and then folded it over and sewed down on the front. 
I'd bought a bit of extra fabric and Milly wanted a pair of pyjama shorts from it, so I used the same pattern in a 12 and they fit perfectly. I'll definitely be using this pattern again.
