Anyway, I saw this nightgown and really liked the neckline of it. And the color of course. The shape and the sleeves, though? Blech. I almost passed it up, but I saw that it was on sale for $9. Oh why not?
The second I got it home, I cut the sleeves off. Then, I flipped it inside out, put it on, and attempted to pin the sides, instead poking my fingers about a dozen times. After I finally got the sides and hem pinned with the help of a couple safety pins, the sewing part went really quickly. Unfortunately, I noticed I had given myself pointy hips, so I ended up taking the hips in a little, too.
But it ended up turning out pretty cute. Shirtdresses drive me crazy because they never seem to stay buttoned all the way (in this case, whenever I sit down), so my next step is to sew the front of it shut. Then it’ll be finished.
Unbelted--definitely looks better with a belt
Haha, when I was saving these cropped pictures, I almost saved one as "tranny" instead of "granny." Hahaha, I amuse myself.
