Ista: a belated June plan - penguin nightie

I need a sure thing, a winner to revive my sewing mojo. It's usually just below the surface and starting to sew anything helps. Especially when you know it's going to be a winner.  I started using the Past Pattern's chemise #002 as a nightgown pattern when I realised that not only is it period accurate in terms of sleepwear for many (despite my flannellette choices) but it's dead simple to make. I've taken to using a contrast fabric for a self drafted neck facing, and must hunt through my stash for the remnant of red with white pinstripes. 2014 penguin nightie
