We are winding down from homeschooling, so I have been able to get some more summer sewing done.
I finished up some matching pyjamas. One is for our baby and the other set is for my nephew’s first birthday on Saturday. These match the set I made for my 3yo awhile ago. These feature Fishsticks Designs free tank pattern. (I made size 12m for our baby and size 18m for my nephew.) The shorts are from Fishsticks Designs Lazy Days Lounge Set.

Today, I was able to whip up some summer nighties for three of our girls. They went together very quickly, about 2-3 hours to make all three from start to finish, in an assembly-line fashion. The smaller two are from the free tank pattern above, lengthened and flared a little. The largest one is a lengthened and flared tank pattern from one of my favourite books, Easy Sewing for Children by Leila Albala. I have used this book, as well as her book for babies over and over and over. I sized down for all the girls from what they normally wear in ready-to-wear clothing. The nighties are sizes 3T (normally wears size 5/6), size 5T (normally wears size 7/8) and size 8 (normally wears size 10). All have plenty of room. The bottom hems are a lettuce-edge rolled hem done on my serger.
