I made this for a bride-to-be for her bachelorette party. I felt awkward making a nighty for someone else, and yet… I had a bee in my bonnet (you know, we sewers are quite stubborn like that!), and I couldn’t get it out! I mean, who wants to pay $40+ for a flimsy night gown?
This fabric is synthetic and has stretch in it, making it a great choice for style and comfort.
The recipient of this gift is a cute, tiny size 0, so I felt like I was making doll clothes. Very fun! :D
I wanted to create something sweet and simple. After much brainstorming, I decided to use the Colette Sorbetto pattern. I lengthened it to create a thigh-high, a-line, mini-dress. According to the bride-to-be, it fits wonderfully! Three cheers for the Sorbetto!
I might have to make one for myself now, I think it’d double nicely as a tunic with jeans.
Vintage synthetic (lycra? poly?) stretch fabric, re-purposed lace from a vintage curtain.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
