Welcome to the Spring Blog Tour with Pickle Toes Patterns!
For this blog tour I will be reviewing the Night Night Gown.
I personally think this is a fairly easy design to sew and it can be a daily wear gown if you use the right fabric! My girl really love it!
For this design, the recommendation for the fabrics are cotton and cotton blends, flannel, seersucker or stable knit such as French terry, Ponte or interlock, and I use a stripes Japanese linen instead and a matching green corduroy for the bodice.
The design have 3 sleeves option - flutter sleeves, short sleeves and long sleeves. And 2 dress length, which are the tea length and floor length. I know my girl is suitable wearing the tea length and unfortunately, I do not have enough matching fabric to add the ruffles. Aww...
PTP instructions always have some tips on how to sew with knits, and if you do not have a serger, you can always use some stitches on your portable sewing machine, PTP covers that too!
You know we are learning new thing everyday, right? Although I have been sewing for years now, I have no idea what is the FOE (fold over elastic) and I do not have a matching rib knit/ cotton lycra that is used in this design for the neckline and armbands, but I was lucky that the neck holes is large enough for my girl to put her head through, so I finished the neck hole with similar Japanese linen cut on bias.
But I will surely dig some information on Fold on Elastic because I am pretty sure they don't sell it here :(
The PTP have layering option which save you a lot of headache and papers too! lol and assembling the patterns is easy.
The Night Night Gown have so many mix match option and comes in size 6 months up to 20 years! Woww wow...how cool is that, you save a lot of *ka-ching with just one pattern!
