Lace-Trimmed Vintage Sheet Nightgown
This is the nightgown I promised I would share that I made for my daughter for Christmas this year. I just love the way it turned out! I think the style and colours of this nightgown are just about as lovely as can be. I did start off with a pattern, but patterns and I don't always get along so I changed it up quite a bit in the end, mostly around the neck. I got frustrated with the instructions and I think sometimes I don't like being told what to do. Ha!
I've had this fabric for a very long time and always had a hunch that the large vintage sheet might someday become a nightgown. I cringed slightly when I cut the sheet. I may have to at least make a pillowcase or two with the left over fabric.
This dress is reminiscent of the pillowcase dress I made for a dear friend years ago. It's amazing to me to think that was four years ago now!
I haven't been posting as much lately. One of the reasons is that I have been loving going to bed really early and reading. I feel myself becoming quieter lately and wanting to spend more time alone; reading, writing and just thinking things over. It's been very nice. But I'll be back soon to share some photos of a sweet little pom pom trimmed pillow I made for Winnie as well.
I hope your January if off to a wonderful start!
