flowers + a nightie

Totally unrelated but the photos compliment each other so there you go... that's my post title.

The flowers were a mothers day gift from my in-laws picked from their garden. One posy for me, one for my Mum and one for my Nana. So sweet!

The nightie is my first finished item for the Kids Clothes Challenge. My week will be a bit short as we are off down the coast on Friday for a few days, but I'm hoping to get started on these pants for Sachin tonight. As I suspected I have already cheated myself and avoided using a pattern. Such a chicken!! I created my own pattern from one of Ruby's existing nighties which has been a favourite and made it a bit bigger. The fabric is a beautiful soft chenille - thankfully she likes it - and apparently, it works a treat. She has worn it to bed the last 2 nights.

One down... more to go. This time I promise I will tackle the pattern! Off to check out the other 200 or so sewers and see what they are getting up to.

Such a beautiful color nightie! Love it.

Can't wait to see what else you make!

I have a weekly Thursday blog party especially for people to share things they've made to be worn. Stop by if you'd like!

Oh, now that's what I call a nightie! Perfect.
