About Us

Establishing Bedtime Bugs in 1998, Claudine started making pyjamas for a few friends at creche, and soon moved from kids to Mums and Dads. Over the past 17 years she has built a highly successful business with a very large client base of pyjama lovers who repeatedly purchase the wild and funky garments that Claudine can come up with over a glass of red wine, pair of scissors and a sewing machine.

 

Claudine McPherson

Claudine McPhersonClaudine McPherson's first starting managing a lingerie boutique in Vancouver, Canada to pay her way through a University commerce degree. After being conned by her husband to move to Melbourne and then (conned again) some years later to Singapore, the lingerie bug bit her again.

Establishing "Not-so-strait-laced lingerie" allowed her to design beautiful silks, cottons and lace from around the world to her wealthy expatriate clients.

After 5 years, returning again to Melbourne in 1998, she found that Melbourne ladies were a bit more practical with their nightwear but enjoyed garments that expressed their personalities, so maybe conservative and business like during the day but wild and crazy pyjamas at night were definitely a winner.  

But in using the odd pieces of cotton flannelette to design some pyjamas for her two year old son, she found a new market. There has been no looking back.  The fabrics are still wild, no beige in the fabric storage, fantastic quality and the customers still love the experience of wearing one-off bespoke pyjamas that are made with love.  

 

 

 

What makes this sleepwear so different?

Everything is hand made by Claudine right here in Melbourne. There is no sweatshop, no contract sewing, and no shortcuts.

Everything is made of 100% cotton all excellent quality, colour fast and hardwearing. Claudine uses only the best quality threads, all buttons are sewn on by hand, and even the interfacing used to strengthen collars and lapels is serious quality from Germany.

All of this coupled with her perfectionist sewing and limited edition runs bring customers back each season. Customers can choose from the hundreds of garments already available or they can choose to have one custom made, for an addition cost, with their own measurements and fabric choices. There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from and with a little help from Claudine, you can make the perfect selection for your own pyjamas with personality.

Bedtime Bugs pyjamas are available online or by appointment with Claudine.  Please give her a call on 0408 551 736 to discuss what you would like.  

For those people who love their pyjamas and dare to be different, or want something out of the ordinary, they have found the right place to express themselves.
