Vintage Pattern for Classic Nightgown

First, I want to thank all of the people to who left the sweet notes as we shared our happy news of our pregnancy! I really appreciate the well wishes. I am starting to feel a little bit more like myself and starting to sew a little bit more. The other thing that has hit me like a two ton mac truck is I need to be more frugal then ever!! With 3 kids to feed and cloth we have our work cut out for us!

Which leads me to the nightgown I made my daughter. My daughter is extra sensitive and if one thing rubs her the wrong way she will never wear it again. We never fight over this at all...honest! Her nightgown and pajama selection was dwindling down to nothing and she needed something fast.

I looked through some old vintage patterns my grandmother had given me and this is what I found....

Hello, 1950's pattern!!

She said "it looked like Ariel's nightgown." She also picked out the material (shopped in all my boxes of material) and trim. It always helps if she gets to pick everything out


Here is Lawson's Vintage "Ariel" Nightgown.


When my mom saw her in this nightgown she remembered having nightgowns just like this made by her mom (or my grandmother). Isn't that cool??



The best part...SHE LOVES HER NIGHTGOWN~ Designed by Lawson


The other wonderful part...this nightgown cost me 20 cents! That helps the family budget!!

If you are a seamstress look through some old vintage patterns what was old is new again. Designs do not change that much just the material!

A New Season

It has been exactly one month since my last post, have you missed me? I missed my own Gifts from the Heart Party (suppose to be the 20th of each month) but I have a good reason. I am happy to announce the we are pregnant with Baby #3, due February 2, 2011!

While I am feeling good I am just a little more tired then I remember ever being with the first two, but then again I am also not quite as young as I was with the first two either. Today I am 12 weeks and things appear to be progressing nicely. One thing is for sure, I am not as "creative" these days. At first it depressed me and got me down but after praying about it really hard I realized I am in a new season in life and this is where I am suppose to be. My Bible Study friends say all my creative juices are going to creating a new life. I like the way that sounds!

That is not to say I haven't been sewing at all. For July 4th I did make the kids matching outfits and that made me feel good. I love Madras Plaid!

Besides a couple other outfits for my kids that is been about it. I am hoping now that I am feeling less tired I can start thinking about baby room designs and other fun stuff like that! For my first two children I did not make their bedding but this one I definitely will boy or girl...mainly because I got rid of my original set! How fun will that be? I have made my sister's bedding and my best friend's bedding it is high time I make my own. We will also start transforming our bonus room into Wesley's new room and a new and smaller playroom. That should be fun to work on as well!! At least it will be for my husband. Always a project around here!! So I should soon have more to blog about!!

Other then that I hope my kind readers don't abandon me! To be honest, I was a little nervous to blog again. It was the feeling you get when you haven't returned a friend's call in LONG time. Hopefully, I will find a balance that works for me in my new season! Blessings!
