But today I will show you the nightgown I've made... Or should I say nightgowns?
The first I've made was with a short sleeve, perfect for summer.
Reaches the knee, and isn't too tight nor too loose, just perfect to be comfortable!
For the second version I refashioned an old shirt, went with the long sleeve and color blocked the back of the nightgown. This was how I started!
I overlaped the bodice on the back of the nightgown pattern piece and traced.
Cut all the pieces, and add seam allowance to the back bottom part, not on the back top pattern piece. Like the shirt was a medium size, I was forced to cut the front bodice without being on fold so I also add seam allowance here. This was how I ended...
But is was too white, so I thought some color would be nice! Tainted the top part and the neckline band with a light blue and sleeves and bottom parts in coral. Since it was a nightgown, asked my daughter to paint a dreamcatcher for an extra special touch!
Started wondering how to hide the seam in the front bodice and found this lace with the perfect color and some trim to match the dreamcatcher color!...
A few more stitches! And here everything lined perfectly!
