#5 Lace Nightown from End of Summer Closet

RanchHouse Mid- September Sewing Goal: *Mend, alter, refashion 10 Nightgowns.
This is #5.

These Nightgowns: *Are from end of summer closet.

Before: A favorite cotton gown I had not worn all summer; the lace was torn and unstitched in several places.

After: This gown is ready to re-enter the Nightgown rotation. When mending  moved it back into the rotation I considered it a Refashion.

What I Learned: 1) A lot of what I liked about this Nightie was the lace.
2) Searching Pinterest "Nightgowns Refashion" turned up a lot of lace. I saw one of my own post; someone had pinned, but it did not have lace. Hmmm!!!
I revisited my previous nightgown posts and added trims and lace. I posted the new pics on the previous posts.

Before & After:
Re-stitching lace put it back in rotation
