Suitable fabric

Hi ladies

I’ve bought this sewing pattern below to make some winter pajamas for my older son. It suggests that flannel is a suitable fabric, but I have some concerns that this pattern is a pullover design and flannel has almost no stretch. The collar is ribbed cotton, which does stretch. I’d prefer to sew it up in flannel for the warmth, rather than a stretch cotton.

Do you think my son is going to have trouble getting this on and off?

What I know about this is dangerous lol…. what about turning it into a three-button neckline pullover, if you know what I mean! Would that ease the putting on a off perhaps?

That could work, or even a small slit at the back neckline with a single button at the top… hmmm… or I could even do the 3 buttons/press studs on the shoulder like they do on some baby clothes.
Thanks SocialGirl! cheese

Meant to ask you, did you get the material with the “glow-in-dark” motif…

haha, no. He chose a blue one with beige, grey and red cars on it. Going to make the front and back panels of the top plain red, but I have to wait until the local fabric shop gets it in for winter, which hopefully won’t be too long. grin

I’m actually considering it as a career, but wanted to have a taste of it before I sign up for a longer course. I’d actually like to specialise in silk floristry if I did decide to study it.
