Pillowcase Nightgown

This has been a crazy week. I’ve been fighting a cold since Tuesday and literally haven’t done anything since then. Luckily I finished this cute little nightgown for PZ on Monday evening. She’s been wearing it all week and I really need to get a picture of her in it.

She had asked me to make her a nightgown because baby sister has one I got at the resale shop by Mini Boden. She wanted it to have yellow roses on it. As fate would have it, I just happened to snag this pillowcase at a rummage sale last summer and see this tutorial a few weeks ago. Kismet I tell you!

In other news… I just bought a serger! I’m so excited for it to get here. I’ve been thinking about getting one for what seems like forever and I just took the plunge! Now I’ll be able to do all those cool repurposed t-shirt tutorials I’ve been drooling over. Yay!

  3. I have server envy! I’ve been saving up my knit sewing and going to Modern Domestic and using their serger but really wanting one of my own. I’ll anxiously await your reviews.

      Congratulations! I hope you have a blast with your new serger! I haven’t used mine as much as I’d thought I would, but I also haven’t done nearly as much sewing as I did last year. It definitely makes things faster and isn’t really that difficult to thread. My main issue with my serger is I can’t really get as clean a finish as I was hoping for. I probably just haven’t practiced with it enough. Good luck to you!
