A linen nightie

I have a linen nightie that I sewed in pre-blogging days that has been patched over and over...time for a new one.

This one is self-drafted.  Self-drafted being a loose term in that I lay my tank top pattern on the fabric (on the bias) and cut a shape from it, and made a flounce from the left-over bits.

The straps on the previous one were forever ripping, so I used bra strapping elastic for these.

The fabric is from Oh Sew Noosa.


  1. It is pretty fabric - I love that style of nightie. Is it linen again?

  2. Pretty pretty fabric! Making a pretty pretty nightie Mmmm. I find elastic at the shoulders is more comfortable to sleep in. and yes, less ripping too!
