Nightie, Night...

Nightie

I have suddenly discovered the nightie.

Nightie

Perfect Summer sleeping attire for the girl child now that she has gone all girly on me. I find myself wondering why it has taken me so long to put Willow in nighties, but I think having a boy child first (& a drawer of hand me down PJ's) had a lot to do with it. The best part is that nighties are so simple, cheap & fun to make. This little number started out as the sundress pattern, but I added some pleats & button detailing in the front & once again ommitted the shoulder ties.

Nightie

The cotton fabric has the tiniest of pink dots on it & is quite soft, making for a sweet & comfy nightie.

I know Willow doesn't really need anymore nighties, but I am fairly certain this won't be the last nightie I will make for her this Summer...

All three of us are HUGE nighty wearers in this house - husband excluded of course. This is a gorgeous pattern and I'll definitely give it a try.

Did you increase the width of the front and back to allow for the pleats?

Lovely nighty. How cute! Can't wait for my littl'un to be big enough so I can start making dresses and nighties and things. Love the pintucks.
