I love an easy project and this one was created out of necessity since all the pjs Anja got for Christmas were too big for her to wear now. This flannel peasant-style nightshirt features raglan sleeves and a drawstring tie back in my current colour crush of grey and yellow. I made it a nightshirt, but of course, it's easy to lengthen into a nightgown or maybe even add a pretty ruffle at the bottom.
Cut two of front & back on the fold.
Cut two sleeves on the fold.
Cut a little piece of contrasting fabric for the back tie openings.
Sew the sleeves to the front and back.
Sew the little back piece to the centre of the back and sew in a squared off U-shape. Cut down the middle being careful not to snip any stitches.
Iron the edges of the contrasting fabric, then finish/serge the neck edge. Turn to the wrong side and stitch the edges of the contrasting piece, adding a tag if you have one.
Fold over neck edge and stitch.
*this photo was taken after I'd already added the ties...oops!
Add bias tape or ribbon ties. I made my own...here's a tutorial.
Stitch sides and underarms.
Sweet dreams, sweet girl...
