Flickr Fest Best is celebrating the end of 2010...

 

 

I'm a little bit older

a little bit wiser

a little bit rounder

but still none the wiser.

(Robert Paul)

 

 

Happy New Year!!

SEW Hip! Silky Nightgown...completed!

SEW Hip! Nightgown

 

SEW Hip! Silky Nightgown (issue 23) is my 24th 2010 SEW Hip! Challenge project....

 

 

Making it the

FINAL

SEW Hip! project of my 2010 Challenge!

 

 

 

SEW Hip! Nightgown



 


 The SEW Hip! Silky Nightgown was surprisingly easy...

I know I say that alot but it really was!

It's marked as an Advanced pattern, but just like the Dressing gown

I think a complete novice can handle this.

All you have to do

is cut out two rectangles, sew the two together and

you are half way there!

The beauty of this pattern

is that you can adjust the measurements as you go along.

I chose to reduce my sleeve openings

by 3 inches and to take in the side seams by 2cm,

and I still have a lot of room to move?!

Even the waistband was obligingly easy to fit so  

no complaints

there either.

Once the waistband is on,

all you have to do is thread through some ribbon and you have

the perfect beach dress!

 I guess I forgot to mention

I decided to turn the Silky Nightgown into a beach dress.


Check out it out

I call it the Avalon (beach dress)
