Here is what I have completed so far:
I made these two nightgowns using the Miss Madeline pattern I bought off of Etsy.com. My daughter has outgrown my favorite peasant dress pattern (simplicity 5695) and I wanted to try this one out to see if I liked it as much. Unfortunately, I don't. It doesn't hang/fit as pretty. Probably because the front and back pieces are cut the same. But it is fine for a night gown... Can anyone recommend another peasant dress pattern for sizes 5 and up?
I took a picture of the pattern pieces, you can see the differences. The curves of the Simplicity pattern must be what makes the fit.
I have some interlock cotton in a floral print, I will probably use it to make one more lighter weight nightgown from from this pattern.
I made this little top and short set using the Sienna dress and the perfect Short Patterns from Lil Blue Boo. She had a back to school sale a while back and I scooped up a couple of patterns. The fabric is some t-shirt knit I picked up on sale at Fabric.com I have enough fabric left over so I think I will make a pair of pajama pants with the short pattern. I love how they fit. They have a great waistband, no elastic needed. Here are the shorts up close:
I started these pajama bottoms last winter using Simplicity 2677, but never finished them. I added a ruffle to extend the lenght a little bit and they fit just fine. I made the shirt using one of my old maternity t-shirts and the Lil Blue Boo Sienna pattern again. I used all of the butterfly flannel fabric to make the ruffle, which is a shame because the t-shirt would have been so cute with a couple of yellow butterflies appliqued to the front.
Next on my list is some pajama bottoms for my son. I have 5 one yard cuts of some really cute-for-boys flannel. I just hope 1 yard is enough for a pair of pants. So far I have only made shorts for him, otherwise I will have to get creative... After I finish the pajama project, I will be moving on to some fall/Halloween projects.
I will be linking up to some of the fabulous linky parties listed here. Check 'em out if you have a chance!
