We all know that one of the best Christmas pressies you can unwrap is a new pair of crisp cotton pyjamas. It is one of life’s simple pleasures to have new pj’s , especially for Christmas.
This review is of the pretty cotton Patricia pyjamas from Powell Craft. They have been sent to my daughter as an early Christmas gift from the ever so friendly Lucy at Loobylous.co.uk.
The pyjamas cost £19.99 and they look truly stunning in their presentation bag. A lot of work has gone into making these beautiful girly pyjamas and you can tell they are made by Powell Craft just by looking at them. It is because of the special little touches such as the ribbon edging and the presentation bag plus the charming floral fabric is very typical of a Powell Craft design.
The pyjamas are made from 100% cotton and the ribbon trim is a muted raspberry colour. The top fastens with sweet flower shaped buttons. The top and trousers are both quite roomy which means that the child wearing these will feel comfortable and not restricted. Plenty of room to wiggle around in bed until they get cosy enough to fall asleep.
The Patricia trousers have an elasticated waist plus there is a working drawstring which means the waist size can be further reduced if needs be.
The pyjamas are machine washable and Lucy advised me the best way for me to dry them is to hang them on a coat hanger while they are still damp and leave them to dry like that.
The pyjamas are more money than your usual high street children’s pyjamas but they are superb quality. They are beautifully presented in a useful button-up presentation bag which certainly does add to the luxury of the gift. They would make a perfect gift for a child either this Christmas or for a birthday. Lucy doesn’t only stock the Powell Craft pyjamas and nightdresses for girls she also stocks boy’s sleepwear from Powell Craft too.
Loobylou’s is an official Powell Craft stockist and she stocks lots of their wonderful products. This includes children’s sleepwear, rag dolls, children’s bedding, raincoats, wellies and clothing. Powell Craft was established in Cornwall in 1962 which means that 2012 is their 50th anniversary.

Loobylou’s is a mumpreneur run company and I don’t hesitate in recommending her online shop to you all. I have only spoken to her via email but she is a very friendly person who aims to please her customers. She only stocks products that she personally loves and she certainly knows her stuff when it comes to Powell Craft products.
I’d like to say a big thanks to Lucy for sending me the lovely new pyjamas for my daughter. She has enjoyed testing them out for me.
