Today, I finished sewing the nightdress I cut out yesterday.  It is a more or less classic "granny gown" pattern, except I left out the lace details along the neck, yoke, and wrists called for in the pattern. 

Flannel Nightdress

(Obviously, I didn't iron it before taking the photo - I must admit I try not to iron any more than absolutely needed!)  The fabric has tiny blue and white stars on a pale blue background.

This is my favorite nightdress style.  I have another nightdress in the same pattern sewn with the pink version of this fabric.  And the pajama top that I sewed earlier is based on this pattern, with the length shortened and the front opened all the way.

I now have two flannel nightdresses and a flannel pajama set for winter night wear.  I wore my pajama pants, last night, and they were so comfy, I am tempted to sew myself another pair (the pants, only) to wear around the house to relax in, sort of like fleece pants.  I have another length of flannel in my stash, if I decide to make another pair of pajama pants.
Of course, all this sewing means I now have a small collection of leftover flannel fabric!  I'm thinking about making a rag quilt, eventually.

In addition to sewing, I did a load of laundry and watered the front garden.  Emptied all the waste baskets and took the trash cans to the curb for trash pick up tomorrow.  And video chatted with daughter, of course. 

How was your Monday?    Did you have a good day?



  1. I love your night dress. It will be so comfortable. What pattern did you use?
    I love sewing.. I have so many patterns/fabric.. Just need more
    Have a great week.

    1. Judy, thank you. The pattern I used is McCall's #7431, size Y (combination S,M,L). It includes patterns for pajama pants & top, robe (a longer version of the pajama top), nightdress, and nightshirt (a shorter version of the nightdress).
