Wardrobe Wednesday - Nighty Night

I wasn't sure whether to make this a Wardrobe Wednesday or a Project 2011 post. Since my original WW plan didn't work out, and I've got other ideas for Project 2011, WW wins!

You all may remember that I am learning to sew this year. I think I may have started on a little more challenging of a project than I intended. Thanks to RasJane, who came over and walked me through the sewing steps, I was able to finish Princess' nightgown a couple of weeks ago. RasJane has been sewing since she was a child and really knows what she's doing. 

I believe my next projects will be much simpler . . . things like gift bags, aprons and pillows. Then maybe I'll move up to something just a little bit more challenging. I may also steer clear of the cheap patterns. It seems the more expensive ones are easier to follow. 

Still, all in all, I am very pleased with the nightgown results.

And Princess was more than happy to show off her modeling moves.

The bottom line . . . Princess loves her new nightgown and I made it long enough and big enough that it will fit her for at least a couple of years. 

Now head on over to our Wardrobe Wednesday sponsor, Aliceson, at Feet Off the Table to see what all the cool kids are wearing. 


  1. Yay! Go you. I'm so glad you had someone close by to help walk you through it. Giving advice and tips through text is kind of limiting. ;)

    The nightgown looks awesome!

  2. I love it! It turned out great. I'm so glad I was able to come over and play with you. It looks like Princess loves it too.
    Maybe we can work on handsewing at park days?

  3. Beautiful, it came up really really well:)You should give yourself a huge pat on the back for being able to complete it:)

  4. Thanks, ladies!! I am rather pleased with the result.

    Sheri, email assistance is a bit limiting. ;-)

    RasJane, I would love to work on hand sewing at park days!! :D

    Jessica, I am patting myself on the back. Truly. :-)

  5. Way to go, SL! That nightgown looks super comfy, I bet Princess loves it!

  6. Thanks, Aliceson! It is sooooo soft . . . The first day Princess put it on, she didn't want to take it off.

  7. Wow, I've always wanted to sew something, but I really suck on the sewing machine. lol NICE JOB and such a sweet model!

  8. Sheila, I am determined to master, or well . . . not suck . . . on the sewing machine. I know it can be done!
