Old Fashioned Nightgown 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

This nightgown was a quick easy sewing project. The finished nightgown reminded me of the soft flannel nightgowns I wore as a child!

Cozy Nightgown

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.
