Silk PJ Butt

I scored a bunch of lovely haberdashery in Japan and thought I should do something special, so addressed another old fave: this men's PJ pant gone-very-vintage-in-my-closet. It's another underpatch arrangement, with a bit of dayglo tshirt covered with a piece of broderie anglaise and attached with the usual sort of sashiko-kantha pickstitch, executed in Japanese threads with my new handmade Japanese needle. This is the only needle I will ever own that cost $18. I know right! But it's heaven. I included the "before" butt shot because of some kind of masochism.
