a flannel nightie



Well, she had to have a flannel nightie, didn't she? The nights are becoming quite cold now, don't you think? So I upped the ante and finished off this project that was started a week or two ago. It's all busy busy busy here.

I used the same Japanese pattern as for this nightie .. possibly because I still had the pattern already drafted out and probably because I'm all for an easier life. In any case, it's a winner of a pattern. The fabric is left over from the Tova dress I recently made and I'm thinking it may just have been growing in the darkness of the cupboard as there's still some left for something else.

I bought some fabulous wool the other day and am itching to get stuck into that. Perhaps it'll have to stay on the back burner a while longer, after all January will doubtless be cold so there's still time for woollen dresses.


Keep warm, everyone!

  12. Snuggle. That's the word that springs to mind when I look at this wonderful, covetable nightie. Snuggle. Warm fire. Toast. Bed socks. Cuddles. Who would have thought your nightie could have conjured up so much warmth and happiness in my mind! Vanessa xxx

  14. Thank You! This is exciting because who doesn't need girls sleepwear? I think many should shop for new sleepwear and with that being said, why not buy the best in town. You will not be disappointed at all. Enjoy the new clothes.

There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
