Description

Reef by Megan Nielsen is a camisole and shorts set that can be worn as pajamas, loungewear, or separately depending on your fabric choice. The camisole top (version 1) is cut on the bias and has a slight high-low hem. In addition, the front features a v-neckline while the back has a crossover yoke. Both the neckline and yoke include facings for a clean finish.

Versions 2 and 3 are elastic waist shorts with different hemlines. Version 2 has pockets, a curved hemline, and are meant to be worn below the natural waist. The shorts for version 3 have a straight hemline and sit on the natural hip.

Sewn up in a rayon challis this set would be perfect for everyday lounging. Use silk for a slightly more challenging sew and be cradled to sleep in comfort.
