Matching nightgowns part two [Kwik Sew 2446]

I love to ruffle thru my Mom's pattern stash when I'm home.

She has LOTS of patterns!
I do, too, but mine are all from the big three, (Simplicity, McCall's, Butterick) a handful of Vogue's (mostly for women) and PDF patterns (mostly the ones I test).

Mom has an assortment of expensive patterns that I can't afford. My favorites are the vintage patterns, the Kwik Sew's, Jalie's and occasional independent designer- like the Modkid's and Pink Fig's and stuff.

Kwik Sew's are great for those classic peices. Some of the photos and styling are outdated- but look at the line drawings and you'll know that they're great, simple, and comfortable. I've never made anything from a Kwik Sew pattern that I didn't love.

These are no different.
I believe that Kwik Sew 2446 is out of print, but you can always find them on ebay and stuff. I'm pretty sure that's where Mom got this one.



I made these nightgowns from view B with some more of that single knit from fabric.com. The edges are finished with stretch lace, which I love! It's so sweet and was so easy to do and luckily, my Mom has a huge stash of stretch lace to choose from. I added a little bow to the front and rolled hem the edge of the ruffle in pink.

Cute!



I love Emma in this photo. What a little model... with the wind blowing in her hair.
She is so adorable!



Both of these girls are just so adorable in thier matching nightgowns.
