KCW Day 1

Flannel nighties!! For my baby and her babies.  I wasn't sure a nightie would be practical in size 2 (she's still in 18 mo), so I made it a 3 for next summer. Now I'm regretting that choice because she is so happy with the nightgowns for her dollies. Hmm. Oh, well, another 2 yards off the shelf!!


Patterns: Sweet Little Dress by Leila & Ben, my own draft for dolls
Fabric: white flannel(ette?) with rosebuds and pink flannelette
Sizes: Size 3T, Bitty Baby, and 13" doll 
Mods: Added a ruffle at the hem of the girl nightie (loving the rolled hem feature on my serger!)


I'm challenging myself not only to sew for at least an hour a day, but also to use what I have in stash only.  So far, so good!  The sewing forum I'm on is doing a stash challenge, and I have no negative points for fabric in this month yet!


  1. A very good first day! I love the nightgowns :)

  2. Recognize the rosebud flannel, Shannon? Thank you for it!!
