Nina Lee Piccadilly Pyjamas (Intermediate)

(1 review) Write a Review


The Piccadilly Pyjamas are a chic sleepwear set with oriental accents – a soft and open Mandarin collar and gently curving hems. Version 1 consists of shorts and a cap-sleeved shirt; Version 2 of cropped trousers and a shirt with three-quarter length sleeves. The pyjama bottoms have a flat-front waistband with an elasticated back, finishing with a ribbon tie. Comfortable yet elegant, these pyjamas are perfect loungewear for those who like their comfies cool!

Skill level: advanced beginner (techniques include bias binding, attaching a collar, inserting sleeves and making buttonholes).


Piccadilly is best suited to soft, lightweight fabrics that will feel good against your skin: e.g. cotton lawn, rayon, silk satin.


25mm bias binding (15mm when folded; see sizing chart)

2.5cm-wide elastic (see sizing chart)

2cm-wide grosgrain ribbon

6 x 12mm buttons

0.6m lightweight fusible interfacing (for the shirt front facing, front waistband and the collar)

    Piccadilly Pyjamas

    I bought this pattern because i liked the idea of the mandarin collar.
    I do not think the jacket of the pyjamas has been well drafted. The front facings do not extend to the bottom of the front pieces, leaving their curved edges suspended and looking very untidy. I thought I might have made a mistake, but no, the lllustration shows it to be right.
    The back of the jacket does not have a yoke, or any gathering/pleats at the top centre to give wearing ease.
    Altogether, a disappointing pattern
