Miss 5BN requested another summer nightie, we bought some lovely light voile at Spotlight, and set to work. It came together quickly, I could not be bothered setting up the overlocker, so french seamed the side seams, actually the side seams are neater and more durable when sewn as such.
|No belt added to the waist, enabling the nightie to be straight - no gathers|
|A piece of bias binding sewn into the back neck seam - shows Miss 5BN which is the back|
Tag at the back!
|light weight and summery|
|sewing the bias onto the arm hole opening|
|dress by day, nightie by night!|
I will be making more of these nighties, choosing some funky fabric that will be able to work the day and night scene well!! The nightie / dress has been lovely and cool for the recent heat wave we have been having.
