Such a cute little dress. Burda calls this “an item to relax in.” It’s cut for comfort (I’m quoting from the magazine) and is charmingly casual. It features a wide neckline with edging and drawcord and cute raglan sleeves. Huh. It’s a pretty simple make, but I made it more complicated – because I didn’t want it to be form-fitting – and added about 2 inches down the CF and CB. I ended up with a tent. My lovely darling DD1 walked in the door from school and said, “What’s up with the nightgown, mom?” Wait. Nightgown? I know this is stay-at-home wear, but I wasn’t wanting this to look like a nightgown. So I took out the width that I’d added and I must say that I like it a lot better. Just for fun, here’s a tent picture.See? A little 80’s maternity wear. Not working.Much better without all that extra width. The neckline detail is a very wide (about 10 inches) rectangle cut on the bias with a casing sewn in for the self-fabric ties.I used a double layer of chiffon. It was a bit fussy to sew, but it worked out well. And I left off pockets. I know, I know. But I really dislike pockets, except when they’re in jeans or outerwear. I never use them for anything. Hmmmm…. maybe it still looks a bit nightgown-ish. Definitely stay-at-home don’t-answer-the-door wear. D’ya think slippers would improve the look?
