Today's accomplishment

I finished a nightgown for Amy today. It's the same style as the Addy American Girl nightgown. It took only 4 trips to the fabric store to get everything needed for it. ; ) First I bought fabric, then after starting the cutting I discovered there wasn't enough. I forgot I needed the trim for it, so we went back. Later Amy reminded me we needed buttons...

It actually only took an afternoon to sew once I got all my ducks in a row. Next project I'll try to make a better list.

The next project is a swing coat from dark orange corduroy and a coordinating lining. Hope it goes well, especially the fitting.

This blog has a weekly post called Sew Crafty Friday. I'm including this nightgown on there this week. http://w8ng4him.blogspot.com/

For all that, it looks like it turned out really well.

That's so pretty as is the jelly bag from Christmas. I'm so glad that there are other Christian crafty bloggers out there!

How pretty. Both the nightgown and your daugther. ;0) You did a great job. Did you use a specific pattern for it? If you have the pattern company and number, I would to know. Thank you for sharing that quote from the book. It's funny, in the last 48 hours I have heard of that book 4 times. Maybe I need to look into buying it. lol

It's so cute! My daughter had Molly when she was a kid. (Molly resides up in the attic now. My daughter just turned 23.) I used to love to sew for that doll. I loved sewing for my daughter, too, but I don't think I ever made her a nightgown. Not one as adorable as yours, at least.
BTW, it is so very heartening to hear that I am not the only one who can't finish a project because she's missing this or that ingredient. Can I tell you how many things I have hanging in the closet that need only a zipper, or the right buttons, or the right color binding? Never mind...I'm not saying!

Love the nightgowns. I so enjoy making matching clothes for my own daughter and her dolls. You did a beautiful job and so feminine. Love the details. Great job.
