RanchHouse Mid- September Sewing Goal: *Mend, alter, refashion 10 Nightgowns.
This is #1.

These Nightgowns:
*Are from the closet end of summer closet change over.
 
 
After:
Pleats stitched down.
Lace added to hem.
Nightgown top
Top changed out for knit t.






After:
Pleats stitched down for easier ironing.
Before: Old white, soft White Cotton Night Gown from end of summer closet. 
I love old well worn, soft, smooth jeans, night gowns, and sheets. .
Sleeve-less ribbed t-shirt from the closet.
 
RanchHouse nightgowns need to be comfy, but also be presentable enough for making morning coffee.
 
After: Summer Nightgown ready for one last wear before packing away for the season.
After:
Simple seam to join new top.
Before:
Top of gown stayed rumpled.
I wanted it to at least be presentable for morning coffee.

Before:
Nightgown and sleeveless t-shirt.
from end of summer closet.

What a pretty nightgown, and I bet it's so comfortable with the t-shirt top.
