Nightie...

Wednesday, October 13, 2010



I've been sick all weekend (Thanksgiving weekend!). I made this nightie a few days ago and I sure was happy to snuggle up in it, and a blanket yesterday after wedding dress shopping. I felt like I had been run over by several, large trucks.


I feel mostly better, but am still dealing with sniffles and hot and cold flashes...



I bought the fabric that I used for this nightie ridiculously cheap, in the clearance section of the local fabric store. I think it was $3 or $4 a meter. I bought a ton and have cut out a bunch of bralettes and panties out of it, to be trimmed with yellow lace (please excuse the pile of shoes in this picture!).


Anyway, instead of trimming this nightie with lace like suggested, I just used a band of self fabric to finish the edge. It is SO comfortable, the fabric is so soft, kind of heavy and drapey (really nice jersey). I want to wear nothing but this... and wedding dresses.


Tomorrow is back to work, sadly... though I must admit I'm looking forward to getting back to my knitting - I should be able to finish my last sock by the end of the day! I never heard back from the flower shop so a-job-hunting I will go again. I am still thinking about just applying to school and worrying about how to pay for it later...




But for now, I do have goodies to post on Etsy as soon as I get some "in action" photos. I just don't know quite how to do it. I was browsing some other sellers photos of panties and the like... and I was a little disappointed with the amount of scary thin, too young, too La Senza a lot of it was. So I will need to think about this some more.. But, for now I have these:
