I just finished this one. It came out very pretty, and a bit bigger than expected. Used green cotton novelty-print fabric from stash (slightly too short) and buttons also from stash (49 cents for a card of six!) Changes I made: Used bias tape instead of cutting binding for around the neckline and armholes, shortened the ruffle. Kept the buttons but left out the lace (it was hard to find.) Added piping on the diagonal front yoke seams. Kwik Sew patterns have a smaller seam allowance, so I cut it bigger to have a seam allowance like the big 4. I will probably make it again in the future.

Lovely nightgown--it reminds me of the nightgowns my mom used to wear when she was in her 20's.

congrats on your first review. I like KS patterns, too. Your nightgown is beautiful and reminds me of simpler times. Glad you got your mojo back.
