Ah Pek Pyjamas

During childhood time, my mum will sew pyjamas for us. She like to buy fabric that come with stripe, never never buy those flowery and carton design wan, I dunno why! That’s why I use to call this kind of sleep wear as Ah Pek shirt. But we still wear it without any complaint! She never buy us pretty sleep wear, due to poor financial and want to save cost . But she will buy us new dress or shirt during CNY, maybe she worry we might feel jealous if see neighbour kids wear nicely during the festive. I cannot remember since when she stop sewing pyiamas for us; perhaps after she saw us just wear T-shirt and long pants to sleep Now look at my girls’ cloth collection (or even toys collection), I really feel they are so lucky as compare to my time. Yeah, some of you might think: aiyah, dun compare la, now is what century liao!.... MIL has many collection of fabric in her wardrobe, all well keep. I dunno she keep them since when. Since I move to this house I already see those collections. Once a while she will took out some and pass to me, ask me do dresses or shirt for the girls if free. Sometimes she will DIY for the girls too! She uses the stripe design fabric and makes one set sleep wear for Wien. Wien so happy once it is done, wear it almost everyday during bedtime. After the wipe, she’ll tell she wants to wear the Ah Pek pyiamas. Right picture : Pyjamas DIY by her Ma Ma. I never DIY this kind of pyjamas, as most of the time I will just buy for them. But after see she so happily wearing it, I tempted to make one for her. So MIL dig out from her wardrobe again, found another piece of 100% cotton fabric, she pass to me. The design not attractive and pretty at all, but never mind since this is my first attempt to make it, the result may not turn out good. Just use it as testing. If ok, then only I buy a better design one. After spend few nights, finally the Ah Pek pyjamas is done. I make some ruffle at the pant's bottom, Wien said look like clown (小丑)shirt ler...hehehe...she also love it very much! Now almost every bedtime she will look for it! Left: she posted like a model, although we keep asking her to stand properly... Right: sipping her milk using straw+ musical mug (but no music now, spoil already!) Next I am going to buy cotton fabric and do a pretty pyjamas for her, as one of her coming birthday present!

Yeah I have one of those strip pyjamas with very cooling cotton, when I was young.

Now my children cannot wear those becoz we on the air-cond to sleep, with those, sure get cold in the morning.
