Rosalind Pyjamas Pattern
Rosalind is from As You Like It and is warm, intelligent and strong of character.
Exiled from her homeland after the death of her father, she manages to subvert the female standards of the day and turns them on their heads by appearing dressed as a man for most of the play.
Initially, her disguise is a form of self-preservation but later she uses her alter ego, Ganymede, to woo the man she loves and teaches him to become a more attentive lover. She is witty and self-deprecating yet has a big heart and is open to the possibilities love may bring.
The Rosalind Pyjamas are comfortably androgynous at first glance with a boxy, masculine shape. However, the devil is in the detail and on closer inspection they could well become totally ‘femme fatal’.Slouchy trousers with an elasticated, drawstring waist and pockets, teamed with a roomy shirt top.
has a pretty rounded collar and piping detail.
has contrast turned back cuffs on both top and trousers. Perfect for relaxing.
Cotton lawn, poplin, brushed cotton make up beautifully but you could also use linen or even chambray for a daywear outfit too.
