I would LOVE to make this pattern into a nite gown, just making it longer into a night dress or to wear it with a pair of nite pants.

does anyone have any suggestions/ what kind of fabric? or a lightweight slinky knit or something?

I think a slinky knit would work well, or maybe nylon tricot. In a loud, funky print it would be fun! Looks like a comfortable nightgown pattern.

I would just walk into a fabric store and pick out something that feels soft and smooth next to your skin, and that comes in a color or print you like. In my case, it would have to be machine wash and dryable too. And I would make the long seams flat fell so it would feel smooth inside.

That's a cute pattern. It would work short as a top like you said or all the way to the floor. I say, just have fun with it!

Pick a fabric similar to what you like sleeping in. I like a lightweight knit in short lengths this time of year. In the winter I like a medium knit in a longer length. Everything I wear has to be breathable, machine washable and looks good out of the dryer.

Flat felled seams are super easy and nice for sleepwear. A little trimming, fold over pressing and stitch is all. I don't use a special presser foot for them. On long straight seams, they are very easy to do! And if you're sewing any fabric that's woven, you won't have raveling.

oh thanx - that is nice to know. I have this VERY ravely rayon fabric that I think I'm just gonna use to line a REALLY nice purple skirt or dress.

its also see thru - so maybe flat felled seams will come in handy.
