A Nightgown for Emily

So I was taking an inventory of my fabric (most of which is scraps) and decided to make use of a jersey type knit in pink camo. The first thing that came to mind was a nightgown for my niece Emily.
Putting the nightgown together was VERY simple. First, I folded the fabric in half horizontally then squared off the edges, then I cut 4" off the selveged end. These ends will become the sleeves.
I then double folded the ends, stuck in some trim and sewed it shut.
Next, I seamed up both sides with a french seam then I hemmed the bottom, then the top (leaving an opening for the elastic). After inserting the elastic and closing up the opening, I attached the sleeves and a cute little bow and VIOLA!
Now the next time Emily comes for an overnighter, she'll have a new nightgown to sleep in!

Spring Please


I'm sick of winter, I want SPRING! I'm tired of being cold. I've had enough of layering my clothes. I want to go outside and play with some plants! I want to wear a sun dress! I want to lay on the beach again! I want sand between my toes!

For cryin out loud, where the heck is SPRING???

Well, I guess I'll just sit around here and wait for you to show up. But please hurry up, will ya?
