Everyone has different needs with their sleepwear! Some folks like knits, some folks love a classic piped PJ, some folks want a nightgown (if this is you, I feel like you’re in the minority because no patterns turned up, sorry).
Sleepwear is a constant need throughout the year, but I inevitably think more about it as we get closer to Christmas (maybe because I always feel like you should have new and extra-presentable sleepwear for Christmas Day?)!
My sleepwear preferences
You can see me in my PJs and my robe below, and while the PJs are perfect for me in warmer weather, during the winter I swap the PJs top out for a knit turtleneck to keep my neck warm! Personally, PJs shorts let my thighs touch in bed, which heats me up far too much regardless of what the season is. But, hopefully you’ll find something that meets your requirements below!
