Dress by day / Nightie at night

 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

Tag at the back!
light weight and summery

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.
