Love the pattern came out great
This nightgown was a quick easy sewing project. The finished nightgown reminded me of the soft flannel nightgowns I wore as a child!
This was one of the very first Pixie Faire patterns I bought. I wanted to make some PJ's and this reminded me of the nightgowns and shorty pajamas my grandma used to make for me back in the 70's. I made both a flannel nightgown and a summer set by adding bloomers and shortening the gown. The pattern was easy to follow and turned out like I wanted it to. I used bias tape to finish the neckline (can't remember what was called for) and I finished the short-sleeved gown the same way as was used for the long sleeves. I definitely recommend this for a cute, round-yoke nightgown.
For the most part I had no problems with this pattern. It would be nice if seam allowances were printed on the pattern pieces or marked with hash marks like other patterns - it would save scouring over the pages of printed material to find out if they are typical 1/4 or not. The pattern really turned out well. I changed the neckline seam binding finishing and made a lining piece to use to finish the top edge instead but other than that I followed the pattern per directions. Will definitely make again!

I had been looking for a nightie pattern just like that. It went together very well
