kcwc: Day seven - Emily's nightieOctober 14, 2012
On my final day of sewing for the Kids clothes week challenge I made this little summer nightie for Emily. She generally wears wondersuits to bed but with the weather warming up I thought a nightie would be cute.
I used an old Style pattern of Mum's - just a basic peasant style with elasticated bias around neck and arms and a small button opening at the back. I threaded elastic through the bias binding and secured it with machine stitching at each end of armholes and neck.
I love nighties. My three girls all went off to bed tonight in a homemade nightie!
Pattern - Style 2361, View 4
Fabric - Japanese lawn from Spotlight on special for $10 per metre
Cost - $5
Time taken - Just over an hour
I've had lots of fun this week sewing for the challenge. I have also enjoyed discovering some new sewers. You can check out the Elsie Marley flickr pool for hundreds of creations made this week.
