Silky Nightgowns


A friend had given me some silky blouses that she no longer wanted. They were too big for me and I'm not really a fan of "silky" clothes.
BUT our grand-daughters LOVE "silky" clothes.
I remade the blouses by:
-Gathering up the shoulder seams and stablizing them with seam binding.
-Cut off the sleeves and took in the sleeve cap.
-Gathered the sleeve head and sewed into sleeve cap.
-Added lace & elastic to neckline and sleeve hems.
-Added ribbon for neck closure.
Now these sweet girls have Silky Nightgowns from Grandma.
