Of course I can...

"Mum can you make me a nightie,?" she asked breezily. "Of course I can," I said confidently. I bought some jersey when I was at Minerva last week after she had asked me, I was looking out for a child-friendly fabric pattern and this seemed to fit the summer nightie bill.


I used the peasant dress/top pattern I used here and made it longer. It was a really quick make because I made the whole thing on my overlocker. Then turned over the casing and hems using a stretch stitch on my Toyota.


Can you see it? I even popped a little lingerie bow on the front. It is light, comfy and nice and long...dare I say it... perfect?


Will making things to order create more demand do you think?

  2. Aw, she looks sooo proud of her new little nightie - and so she should be... well done mum!
    And to answer your question: yes probably, but on the bright side it gives you the opportunity to try all different patterns & fabrics :-)
    Happy weekend,

    1. You have this pattern don't you? Give it a whirl, it would work without an overlocker too. Jo x

  14. Hello lovely Jo you are a wonder - I am really wanting to make my little Peeps some nighties as I spend a fortune on new ones for them when they come to stay - this pattern is just perfect and what a lovely job you have done - no wonder Little Miss Gorgeous is happy, she look so cute. Playing catchup so sorry that I am late in sending in comments, am really missing your and your fabulous posts. Will let you know when I am at BH as I would love to see you. Have a great week, big hugs and loves Jo. Dorothyxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  16. Jo, can you make me a nightie? ;) It's beautiful, and I want about ten of those for myself--it looks so comfy. I'd better get stitching.
