Sleepwear might not seem so appealing to make but, if you think twice, it is something that we give a lot of use and really want it to be comfortable. To be honest the pyjamas (and even underwear) that I made for my girls are the most used items, so there is no reason not to make them and using nice fabrics. They really are very appreciated around here.
For this reason, when Susana from Suco by Susana shared her new pattern to be tested, I wanted to make it.
The Ines dressing gown is her most recent pattern, released yesterday, and I got to test it. It’s a pattern available from sizes 12 months to 14 years old, with a timeless look.
It’s perfect to make using a soft and warm fabric like fleece or quilted jersey, but it worked equally well with a piqué.
For M, I made size 8 for height with size 6 for width, as usual, and it fits well, with room to play and wear layers but without looking baggy. Instructions to make adjustments using different sizes are also included in the pattern.
This pattern has a sweet design with front and back yoke, slightly gathered body and peter pan collar.
Also included in the pattern are lovely appliqué templates that can be placed in the pockets. So sweet! I didn’t used them because of my fabric choice but must include them next time.
I must say that my initial intention was to make the dressing gown using fleece but, the fabric I ordered didn’t arrive and I opted for a piqué I already had in my stash, bought long ago at Trae Tela. It worked very well and it makes a lovely dressing gown for Spring (or even Summer, as we live in the UK…).
You can get it until Monday, 5th February, with a special price. 😉
I am sure this one will be much loved and used. 😊
