Nightgown: McCall's 2476

This project has been requested, made and gifted away. It's a 100% cotton plaid nightgown and it's the essence of coziness. 


I actually wouldn't mind a longer version for myself but I don't think there is enough left over fabric. But I digress...

It's made with McCall's 2476, a pattern that I would highly recommend for beginners or anyone looking for a quick make. The fabric is a 100% cotton shirting fabric, more lightweight than a cotton flannel but still soft. It was pretreated with a tumble in the washing machine, dryer and followed by a steam pressing before hitting the cutting table.   

I don't know what else to say besides the pattern is well drafted and came together perfectly. The only alterations were to shorten the sleeve length.  


The Stats

Fabric:  4 metres

Interfacing:  0.6 metres

Additional Tools & Supplies:  Cutting table, pins, pin cushion, scissors, tailor's chalk, measuring tape, measuring gauge, thread clippers, screw driver, sewing machine, walking foot, sewing machine needle, serger, threads, iron, ironing board and a coffee break or two.  

Happy Sewing!

Edit:  I made a second nightgown with the same fabric, also to be gifted.  There was enough leftover yardage to make a second version.  Only one change, the sleeves were shortened by an additional half inch as requested by the wearer.
