McCalls Stitch N Save 5735 (Girls Nightie)
This pattern was one of the easiest ever. Simple directions. I shy away from minky and stretchy fleece, because it stretches and pulls and is generally a pain. This pattern had really useful tips for people like me, who are scaredy cats.
This project, from start to finish, took me around 40 minutes. I’m wondering if it would work on regular old flannel..but you best bet it to go with a knit unless you feel like drafting a button placket. Also the neckline doesn’t have a true facing. It’s kind of a stitch and flip number; which works great with snugly soft fleece but may not lay nicely with another fabric.
I’m going to try some baby pajamas now with this fabric. I’m nervous to sew a zipper because the fabric is fluffy. It “sheds” a lot when you cut it. But I’ll never get any better if I don’t try.
Kids clothes and commercial patterns are still a bit out of my comfort zone, but with each successful project I feel a little more capable.
