This ladies nightgown in this post reminds me of the little girl's style of pillowcase dresses.
When my parents recently moved out of my childhood home, my mom gave me a big box full of sheets. I love upcycling, and sweet girly sheets are perfect for making nightgowns, in my opinion. I made this from Simplicity 9505, and I just love it.
The nightgown pictured above is version E. I also made another nightgown in version C, with elasticized short sleeves, but I don't like that nightgown nearly as much as this one. The main reason is because of the fabric I chose. I got some bargain cotton fabric on a mini bolt on black friday from Hancock, and it is too sheer for me to be comfortable in. If I make that version from a sweetly printed sheet, I will probably like it a lot better.
I know I will be making this version (E) pictured here again; I have lots more girly sheets to upcycle and this pattern was super duper easy to make. This is the kind of easy pattern that even a beginner sewist can make without trouble. It says Simplicity 2 hour pattern on the front, but I am certain this took much less than 2 hours to make. Mr. Green has looked at me and said "That's pretty," every night that I have worn this to bed, so like I said, I will make this sweet nightgown probably several more times.
