You know you hit jackpot when your precious picky customer does not want to take a new item off!!! I attribute three aspects to success of this project. First is the pattern. One has to use a well drafted pattern with clear instructions to make a well fitted and comfy outfit. For R's night and morning dresses I used the All you need jammies pattern by Heidi & Finn. I don't think I will need another jammies pattern in a hurry. All you need jammies has so many options! A nightgown, a top or a gathered shirt and a pair of wide or slim pants; short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve; cuffs or no cuffs. The same pattern can be used to make everyday tees, leggings and dresses. This was my first experience sewing with Heidi & Finn patterns and I was very pleased!
I feel I am gaining more confidence sewing knits. These night and morning dresses were very easy to make. I sewed most of these dresses on the overlocker and only used my sewing machine to hem the sleeves and the bottom of the skirts and to gather the skirts before sewing them onto the bodices.
R chose the brightly printed fabric herself. It was a case of 'I am not leaving the shop without this fabric'. One can say R is stubborn. I prefer to say she is persistent. The fabric was on sale, so I bought a couple of metres.
The third aspect is comfort. Just what you want from your jammies! Oh, sorry, your night and morning dresses ;)
