I’m honored today of being part of an awesome blog tour organized from Chelsea at Get Your Crap Together for her
Shortie Nightgown and Bloomers
new PDF pattern release.
Do not forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this post, she’s giving away 3 copies of the pattern!
Shortie Nightgown’s pattern comes with two sleeves options (bubble sleeves and sleeveless) and two top length: I went with sleeves and short length because my daughter don’t love to wear nightgowns (I have a light duvet for summer nights, we always sleep with long pajama pants: it’s not that hot here between the mountains), so we’re planning to use it as a shirt+shorts outfit!
I didn’t change a lot from Shortie Nightgown’s pattern (it is perfect as it is!), I only went down 2 sizes on bloomers… because I don’t like too-wide pants on girls and LilPotato is thin: she’s 5 but her measurements were exactly the ones given for a size 3!
I’ve left some more space on legs, using a longer elastic, I think it’s more comfy done this way (I know, they’re no more bloomers… but I love to sew something we’ll actually use, and I bet we’ll use this combo a lot, while at the sea, this summer)…
I’ve decided to use some old bed sheets that I’ve already used in my Lined Foldable Market Bag (because every time I use it I think: a dress would be perfect with those two print together) and for the Stella skirt I’ve sewn last summer.
Then, accordingly to our planned use of this set, we decided to test the Shortie Nightgown outside, during a perfect SunDay!
My daughter tested it for pick up flowers (as you can see, we love it worn back/front, with this little slit in front!)
It’s tested to sleep in the middle of our meadow:
And also for helping dad-lumberjack slipping wood… Shortie Nightgown: approved!
