Baby Doll Nightie

May 24, 2013

Hi there! This is my first post and I’m very excited to be here.  A  few weeks ago I was surfing the internet and typed in 1950’s baby doll nightie and came across the sweetest little number. I took one look at it and thought  I could sew that  for myself. I consider myself still a novice at the sewing machine, so to sew something without a pattern was a challenge. I think I did pretty good and importantly I had fun doing it! I used a simple A- line for the body, muslin fabric for the straps. I added a little eyelet across the front and the back of bodice then topped it off with a little black bow. It really was a simple design! I used the Madeline Mini Bloomers free pattern from Coletterie ( http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-madeleine-mini-bloomers) to make the bloomers. I really love how this turned out and can’t wait to make another! More pics at my blog http://bumblebettys.blogspot.com.
