A very desperate need.
My lovely, fluffy, cosy, snuggly warm winter PJ's are rapidly becoming unbearably so, meaning...
IT'S SUMMER NIGHTIE TIME!!!!
I wanted the "IT'S CLOBBERING TIME!!" font for that bit there, but Blogger's font selection is lacking in such niceties so all caps will have to do. We'll just have to imagine it, ok?
Pattern; McCalls 4454, lengthened from a pretty little camisole to nightie length. With in seam side pockets added, just because.
Fabric; I managed to eke the pieces to the very last scrap from the leftovers of my sew bossy dress, a pretty cotton floral sent to me by reana louise. Thanks, Reana! It's such a nice quality fabric. I didn't have quite enough blue floral for straps, but I found a little piece of pink and white poly gingham that I cut into bias strips to make the straps and to finish the top edge, and also made a short, super skinny spaghetti tube for the little decorative bow on the front. I originally bought this gingham to make little pinked-edge caps for jars of lemon butter, the year I enthusiastically made jars and jars and jars recurring of the stuff to give away to friends. Note to self: I MUST do that again next year. Was hopelessly overrun with lemons this year. Lazy me.
