Frabjous kids sewing :)

It is almost impossible to find a decent-quality cotton nightgown for a girl, it is either pajamas or polyester merchandise by Disney or American Girl alikes. So, I just sat down last week and made this one for my 4-year old.
Quick bits about the project:

Fabric: (Liberty?) Tana Lawn from Mood (last year purchase - yay, I need space for new fabrics...)
Pattern: self-drafted
Seams & Finishing: flat-felled side seams (to withstand multiple washing), double bias binding for the neckline and sleeves

One thing I would change is the finishing on the neckline and sleeves. Tana Lawn next time - it is less stiff for a binding than the solid yellow cotton I used...

What quick projects have you been working on recently? As for me, I am off to print my Holiday Dress pattern and do some modifications - it is for tall sizes...

  1. Just pressing a peplum top for my dd. Her Chanukah present. Fortunately I already made one of these for her since it's a little hard to fit long distance!
    I love your dd's nightgown. It looks good enough to wear as a little sun dress.

  2. Cute! I need to take a lesson from you and use some fabric from my stash. As soon as I get my house straightened up and get my laundry caught up I'm going to get on that ;) I want to make a holiday dress too ;)

  3. Oooh. A Liberty nightie. What luxury! I have a drawer filled with Liberty lawn so you have given me some ideas!

  4. Nice. The print doesn't look like a Liberty pattern to me and Mood usually doesn't carry Liberty. In the U.S., B and J Fabrics seems to have the best selection of Liberty Tana Lawn. http://bandjfabrics.com/fabrics/liberty-of-london
