I could find that they must be pajamas furnished with piping and I actually could find the definition for that:

n
4. A narrow tube of fabric, sometimes enclosing a cord, used for trimming seams and edges, as of slipcovers.

But I still do not understand it and couldn't find the elusive piping in the pictures:

mostly around cushions; but also collars and cuffs as a way of edging the material. Makes it comfortable because you don't have doubled seams to sleep on.


here, pyjama set with piping



it is the edging of the material down the front, and the turn-up on the cuffs of the sleeves.

(obviously your example would be far more sedate! Whistle )

in your list the white is the piping

I thought that was a colored stripe on the pictures.
