Hot summer nights

I had to do it, I needed something to wear lounging around in the evening and it had to be cool to sleep in. I found this wonderfully soft crinkle cotton with a tiny pink rosebud print and then went hunting in my pattern collection to find somthing that didn't have a plunging neckline that the teenagers in this house would be embarrassed about mum walking around in. I combined the KWIK SEW 2822 nightie with the NEWLOOK 6490 top pattern to come up with a nightie that is very comfy and covers everything, I even lined the bust area with plain white fine cotton voile. It passed the sleep test last night.
