The next pattern I'm excited to share with you is AFTERGLOW...
Afterglow is a super sweet nightdress designed for little sleeping beauties...you know, the little girls that just have to wear a dress everywhere?!!
This simple design, featuring pleated front detail and dainty puffy sleeves, is comfortable and easy-to-wear for a good night's rest.
Due to it's classic look, Afterglow can easily double as a play dress with side ties - yep, good enough to wear day or night, dancing in the backyard or twirling in the bedroom!It seems that most of the patterns I design come because of some little obsession or need for a certain article of clothing...Sprout was designed because Lil needed a warm dress...Sweet Dreams, because I wanted a decent pair of jammies...Afterglow was designed after Lil suddenly became obsessed with dresses and demanded to wear her play dresses ALL the time. She doesn't really wear pyjamas at the moment, just picks a dress from her cupboard (or the ironing basket!) and wears it to bed and we have one happy little girl!
So what better thing to do than make a nightdress which looks good enough to be worn as a play dress too? She can wear it day and night as she pleases!
I love this pattern because it is so fast to sew up, definitely can be achieved in one night, yet the finished dress doesn't lack sophistication and attention to detail.
Once again, Fiona has outdone herself with these adorable photos - thank Fiona!
