As I was so happy with my nightie efforts last month,
I thought it only fitting to craft some more sleep wear.
This time a simple top & bottom in cosy flannel
for these cold wintery nights. Brrr.
Once again another easy pattern from Butterick.
Although it was an easy pattern to follow,
I wasn't entirely happy with the outcome.
The neckline was a bit gap-py &
when I tried to close the hole with a tighter elastic,
so it was more snug around the neck,
it pulled the arm pits too high
creating a smaller gap for Miss E's arm pits.
I ended up making it slightly looser, but as I said, not happy with the outcome.
Typically the pants are too long. Yes Miss E is a shorty!
The sleeves I cheated as I ran out of patience
& Miss E nagging me to 'finish' them, so I ditched the frill
& simply elasticated the wrists.
I do wish I'd persisted as it would have been a nicer finish.
I was planning to make the nightie as Miss E has been requesting,
but I don't think I'm going to bother with this pattern.
Regardless of detail, the little Miss is happy, cosy &
as she says, they're so so warm!
