When we curl up for bed, we want to be as comfortable as possible. Of course, that means picking out the coziest PJs. But if you’re anything like me, you have probably lost a certain sense of style that folks seemed to have more of back in the day.
At least, that’s the only conclusion I can come to while looking at these adorable vintage pajama patterns! It makes me really wish I had paid better attention when my mom tried to teach me to sew, because I would totally whip up and wear most of these today.
With examples from the 1940s through the 1970s, you just can’t deny that the vintage pajama patterns have a bit more charm than what some of us sink into bed wearing.
Did you have any of these pajama styles back in the day?
