silk chiffon makes your night gown a class apart

Nicely done, I wouldn't have thought of this fabric for a nightgown either. Looks very pretty!

Wow, that nightie turned out great! I wouldn't have thought to use that fabric for it, but it was an inspired idea. I have some of that fabric, and I think I have the pattern too, but I wasn't looking beyond the flannel. Nice work, thanks for the review.

I love the fabric and have some of it myself. I was curious to read your review and see how it went. Great job, and thoughtful review:-)

Very pretty. I know what you mean about cutting down the SA - why can't I just sew it at that allowance to begin with? But I have noticed 2 things (being self taught and no one explaining this to me) One, is if any adjustment is needed, you have some leeway in the SA. But also - especially if making french seams - that final trimming down eliminates a lot of the fuzzies from just handling the fabric and makes a cleaner cut (when no serger is owned.)
