Old Fashioned Nightgowns for my Girls

posted in: Blog, Hearth & Health, In the Sewing Room | 11

My younger girls have long been begging me to purchase a long nightie for them.  However they are impossible to find in the stores unless I was willing to pay $100+ online.

I bought a very pretty Sheridan doona cover from the op-shop and with the aid of this peasant dress tutorial and these shiring tutorials, I have some very happy girls:)

    I've still got some material, and I thought they look like they really need nightcaps too. Wouldn't be at all hard to do.

    A new project for B to do? Do they look Middle Agey do you think? Tie in with your studies.

    Thanks Narelle:) I'm now wondering about trying another style.
