Pillowcase Nightgown Tutorial
We spend many summer time mornings staying in our PJs until lunch. I decided to make some pretty nightgowns so the girls would at least look nice and sweet on these lazy days. I have been shopping lots of thrift stores lately found such pretty vintage sheets and pillowcases. I listed a bunch in my other etsy shop gingercake. Here are the night gowns I made from some of the ones I kept.
that one was from a sheet. So pretty and delicate! I used up most of that on trials until I finally made this one. Here is from a pillowcase…
I love this print and this poly blend is SO soft. Not as easy to work with since the cotton count is less but still fine. I HATE doing the rolled hem on little girl sleeves and necklines so here I made a cap sleeve and used some lace hem binding as the neck. Pretty! I did a button on the back seen here…
These were pretty easy and here is a quick tutorial for you to make one for your girls. This is for a size 4T. It wouldn’t be hard to make adjustments for a bigger or littler girl but I’ll let you figure that out for yourself! HAHA! Also, this is a quick tutorial that i made assuming that you already know some basic sewing techniques ( like ruffles and attaching skirts to tops, etc.) and most is done with pictures. In my etsy shop patterns things are WAY more detailed but that would have taken me forever so here is the bare bones free tutorial!
Aren’t they the cutest nightgowns you have ever seen? Vintage pillowcases are only a click away at the Gingercake etsy store and make sure to stop by the Gingercake blog for more tutorials. The Play Mat Messenger Bag is looking like a great 2 in 1 Christmas gift.
