I am starting construction on this and I was wondering how you applied the clear elastic at the bust in step 2. I tried the gathers on my muslin and wasn't happy with the results.

Top notch review and exactly what I would want to know in making this up. Wonderful nightie as well, I'm jealous! I completely agree on the straps. I get so frustrated with the outside attachment in a lot of patterns.

About the bra question-yes, a balconette style might work if the straps were not too far apart. Of course, you could sew this top with the straps wherever you chose. You could even add bra cups to it within the lining. I would definitely wear this as a summer top if the fabric and lining were thick enough to not have show through. It is tight enough to provide support for A and B cups. A dress would be cute and easy to do.

I agree with you Mary - inserting straps inside is the only way to go. Would make a cute summer dress too.

VERY cute! I can see them up close better here than on your blog and they are really adorable. What a neat fabric.

This is cute! Can you wear a bra with it without it showing? I think it's cute just for a summer top and not a just nightie!
