Kinda like comfort food. Stuff your Mom makes.
My DD is soooooo miserable right now as she recovers from a tonsilectomy. Together we watched the whole first season of "90210". In one of the episodes the girl has a slumber party and they wear luxurious mens' pajamas. That's how this sleep shirt came about.
I dragged out my charmeuse silks and she picked this one from Gorgeous Fabrics. What dreamy fabric!!
I used a Burda World of Fashion pattern from December 2006 (an issue I bought while visiting her in Germany, how sentimental).
I had 3 yards and it was the perfect amount for an oversized kneelength sleepshirt. I sewed French seams to keep the inside tidy. I feel so sorry for her suffering - it seemed the least I could do.
Good news, she loves it.
I hope she gets lots of wear from it in happier days to come.
