This summer my children don't have a lot in the way of pyjamas. I am loathe to spend money on items that I can make myself, but then I don't make them, and then they don't have any.
I finally made Jemima a night gown from an old cot sheet that my sister in law gave me using this tutorial. It is not a bad tute, it is in fact a very helpful tute, but I have found the pattern is a bit hit and miss, as it relies on you to copy the pattern from a guide. It is not at all difficult, but I have discovered, I am no pattern maker. At least not yet. I would like to get a proper pattern in this style so I could make tops and dresses with more confidence they will turn out. Any ideas?
I forgot to make it A-line so she could actually walk (a minor detail really), so I added slits to the side seams. Fortunately I remembered to add this in before sewing up the sides. I do believe I did not use the quick unpick for this project at all. Go me!
