|Nightgown, New Look 6334|
Life has been busy, so I did some very simple sewing. Relaxing and fun! I added a few pictures at the end of my other pursuits and why sewing simple was so appealing
(My whole body is sore and tired.)
New Look 6334, View A for nightgown
View B for pajama pants.
I didn't look at the directions, but found another pair of my daughter's PJ pants and compared them to the pattern. Interesting the front waistband in the RTW was 1 1/2" shorter than the pattern and the ready to wear was 1 1/2" longer in the back. I also used my overstitch machine to sew in the elastic waistband. I LOVE this trick!
So, I altered my pattern to match something that already fit.
The gown came with a facing for the neckline, but it is silly to put that on a nightgown. So, I used bias binding for the neckline and sleeves. I also cut the neckline larger to allow it to fit over my daughter's head. Not many kids want buttons in the back of a gown.
I have been pulling prints from my stash that are clearly too young for my sophisticated daughter. These are a few of them. They were put to good used in pajamas.

The following are pictures of my garden! I just planted the whole thing for spring: beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, onions and herbs.
|My favorite seeds, gloves and garden plans.|
|First strawberries will be here soon.|
|Onions are going well. There will be 1015's, red, and white onions soon!|
|Everything is planted. Just weed, water, and wait.|
|Green onions grow all year. My tomatoes will top these huge cages before June.|
