Very pretty! Glad your dd loved it. I also loved your tip on serging the clear elastic. Finally see a need for an elasticator foot on my serger!

Very nice!! :) Your comment about the three changes your daughter requested for the next one made me laugh -- she sounds like my 18-year-old daughter (knows exactly what she likes!).

Very curious how it will fit--but absolutely sure pink owls are a perfect fabric. I think the classic way to insert casing between a bodice & skirt is to sew a rectangle (sewn together on the short ends into a circle) of fabric behind the seam and insert the elastic by opening the casing's vertical seam, then sew up the tiny hole (by hand) or not.

Thanks for the inspiration. I need to update my wardrobe of pj's and this looks like a great pattern. A matching robe might be nice too!

It does indeed look soft and comfortable, and like it would hang well. Beautiful!

Thank you so much for your kind comments! Sewcrazy, here in England Medicine is an undergraduate university degree of 5 or 6 years, depending on the course (my daughter's is 6). Some do do Medicine as postgrads here, as in the U.S. (not sure how it works in Canada!), but that is the minority.
