Do you have trouble making yourself sew the things you need but don’t really want to? For me, that means anything that won’t been seen out of my house. However, I realized last night, that my winter nightwear has become a dire situation. Because I hate to sew garments that won’t be seen by the outside world, I usually only have 1-2 nightgowns/pajamas per season. At the end of last winter, I had to toss out both my flannel nightgown and pajamas due to fraying and falling to pieces. I know exactly how old that nightgown was because I wanted to sew something pretty after wearing nursing nightgowns for so long. Buy some, you may say. Well, I bought some summer pajamas last year and they aren’t made well and have started fraying after only a year. Our throw-away society has made it harder and harder to buy high quality items even if you’re willing to spend more for them.
This is my pattern and I’ll be using a light blue flannel-backed satin.
