Today, Felicity's winter PJ needs are now fulfilled.
This is her "baby deer" nightgown. I was given this flannel from a friend who was destashing. Its THE BEST flannel I've ever sewn with, and I sew with a lot of flannel. Its Moda, and I suspect it will hold up for years. Because of that, I made it as big as I could without (hopefully) making it look too baggy. I left a bit of room in the neck, left the sleeves as long as I could (Lissy would prefer them a bit shorter), and I left the length long. I also made the body wider. This will give Felicity LOTS of room to grow, and knowing how she grows, she could be in this for years. It'll be a true test on this beautiful Moda flannel.
And here's her whale nightgown. This one is her favorite I think. She requested it to be long, like the baby deer one. So this one will probably fit her for a while too. My friend found this polka dot flannel, and the rose bud flannel I used in yesterday's sewing, at the thrift store. She sweetly snatched it up for me, knowing I sew with a lot of flannel, and gifted it to me. So, these 3 nightgowns I've sewn in the last two days have cost me NOTHING. OK, I used thread and elastic bought for previous projects, but you know what I mean. All the little creature patches were made with scraps from my "pockets and patches" drawer. Thrifty (or free) sewing is my FAVORITE kind of sewing.
