Welcome to my stop on the Shortie Nightgown & Bloomers Tour! My niece Sofie is ready to show you her Shortie DRESS!

Shortie Nightgown & Bloomers Tour

That’s right, it’s a dress! I sewed a size 3 for Sof, since it will be a while until it’s warm enough to wear dresses full time.

So here it is on the hanger; so you can see how it will lay once this baby grows into it this summer.

Pleated Dress | SewsNBows

I used an inverted pleat at the center front, and added sparkly silver piping.

Piped Yoke Detail | SewsNBows

I also took 2″ off the tunic length and added a contrast band on bottom. I have an extra wide hem that can be let out as she grows. I have the feeling this will be one of those dresses that turns into a tunic, then a top as she gets bigger!

Pale Turquoise Floral Print Dress with Gray Chevron Yoke & Band

The back yoke is open, giving some extra headspace. That means no zippers or buttons for you! And Sofie loves this dress because she can take it off and put it on by herself. Sometimes backward or inside out; but unassisted :)

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    bummer I missed the give away! Very cute set and I like the bloomers as well, Madeleine is not night trained and she hates to wear just a nightie to bed she always wants something over her nappy

    What a clever aunt you are to make it a size bigger so she can wear it when the weather heats up! I love the contrasting patterns, I wouldn’t have thought the lines and floral would go well together but guess what, THEY DO!

    The colors are refreshing, and the silver piping adds a special touch! I think it is great that you did not limit the pattern to be the nightgown !

    Inverted pleats? You are quite the seamstress. Looks great. And, your little model looks as if she’s grown. She is looking more and more like a big girl. Won’t be long until this cute gown fits!

    The silver piping is great! I agree this looks like it will have a long life going from dress to tunic and still be very wearable.

    Oh that girl is full of personality!!! Darling dress! I love the sweet floral print. Kids seem to outgrow clothing in a matter of weeks so it is nice to have clothes to grow into so that last awhile, especially when it is an outfit they like!
