I really like this! I think I have that same sheet in my stash. I appreciate all the work that goes into unfamiliar techniques. Very nice.

What a beautiful nightgown! It sounds like it was a lot of work and it really was worth the effort!

A charming, delightful nightgown and a lovely review - thank you for sharing this. I am envious of your sheet selvedge - I hate hemming! :-) Very nice work on the ruffling and the yoke and all the detailed finishing you did!

This is just wonderful! Pretty, beautifully made and vintage. I hope you are proud of yourself. All that ruffling! A walking foot has saved me more than once.

The nightgown turned out very nice. By the way, I really like the lighting on the pictures.

What a cute little nightgown! you did a great job on it, and good idea using the sheet for fabric :) I just made pajamas for my DD (5yrs old) and she doesn't want to take them off, lol.

Congratulations on your first review and first contest entry. The nightgown looks great. I'm sure the little birthday girl will be delighted.

Very nice job! What a great idea to use a sheet. Yard for yard, it is cheaper than fabric and will stay soft & wrinkle free. I make nightwear for my grandkids, because the RTW versions have such stiff fabric.
