Immy's Christmas Dress

Notice I'm still not posting about the green velvet dress! Yes, I'm putting it off, it's still too painful.

So, instead - a refashion. Take one pillowcase and one vintage nightie pattern and what do you get...  Imogen's Christmas dress!

I loved making this.  A whole dress squeezed out of just one pillowcase.  It has raglan sleeves, and a gathered neckline finished with a self fabric band.  It's super cute.

Even though the pattern is actually for a nightdress, I'm so pleased with it that she can wear it out too.  I may make it again in a soft flannel, so that she actually gets a nightie too!

The back has a simple button closure, so it is easy on and off - necessary with a wriggly toddler.

At the hem, I added a length of lace just to make it a little more seasonal. 

Well, I think she is all ready to party now.  Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Cute little dress! Hope you have a lovely Christmas!
