I was feeling the need of a quick, easy-to-finish project, so I had my daughter pick out a length of cotton flannelette for a quick nightgown.
Except for the neckline, this was entirely a torn project, with almost no waste. Yoke, body, sleeves, and cuffs used up 1.5m of fabric, three buttons from my stash, and a short length of bias tape to finish the neckline.
The end result was a cute, old-fashioned warm nightie. Now her elder sister wants one, too.
