This also comes from Designing and Cutting Modern Leisure Garments for Men from the 1970s. I know that some of the shirtmakers amongst you do offer pyjamas and dressing gowns to your clients. Of course, bespoke silk pyjamas would really be the ultimate luxury. For something like this it would also work cutting off block patterns.

I love that! There are customer who will want that as an additional 'Schmankerl' to the suit. But cost 300$ to make.

^ $300 for bespoke pyjamas would actually be quite a bargain. Doubly so if they were made of silk, but also if they were made from quality shirting Italian or English shirting fabric.

Silk is such a pain to feed through the machine compared to cotton. When the weave is so fine, every inaccuracy is magnified, and the feed dogs tend to leave an impression (on my machine at least).

Generally speaking, if the feed dogs are leaving tracks on the seam, the pressure is either too strong or the feed dogs are too coarse. For shirtings or silks, you should (ideally) use teflon feed dogs and sz: 60 ballpoint needles with a fine (i.e. Tex 12-19) thread.
