easy Vogue


 I have been sewing this summer just was not up to posting but now that summer is over I finally found the time to post this easy Vogue 8380 project.

 

 I used this cotton batiste that I already had but it it was not enough so I had to cut the fabric a little different than the pattern.





I learned a few new sewing techniques from this project such as understitching the armhole facings....it made a neat stitch & finish.

This will be a around the house dress or nightgown though because even with my careful measuring the bodice was a little small.   I will be making this dress again for next summer because I really like the style!

Sew you later!

This is my FAVORITE type of nightie!!! Can't wait to see what you do next summer with this pattern.
How's the 'almost empty house' doing? I find now that my last, and youngest can drive herself anywhere she wants, I have more time on my hands.
