Pyjama Party Finish

Late again!! woe is me..but I am proud to have another finish. Here I am wearing my newly-sewn pyjamas! What do you think?? The fabric is vintage 60's tricot found by a dumpster-diving friend, so it was free. Now that I've gotten the early 60's shortie pajamas craving out of my system, I'm now ready to sew more elegant, perhaps age-appropriate(??) looks. Here's a closeup of the fabric and trims. I thought the cute daisy buttons went well with the little daisies in the print..too "sweet"?? ah well...nobody will see except a few hundred of my closest friends. :D
