A dress for the night: Nora Kate Nightgown

Our girl loves nightgowns and was is need of new pjs. The Nora Kate Nightgown* by Annelaine Patterns is just perfect for the occasion, especially with the winter season coming up.

Nora Kate Nightgown by Annelaine Patterns

I love patterns that have many options. Annelaine Patterns have many options, which means you can use the pattern several times and make a different option every time. Also with this nightgown you can use it for any season in different lengths. I made the calf length with the tall ruffle (there is also a less tall ruffle). But since our girl loves long dresses, I made the longest nightgown that was possible.


The nightgown is an easy sew and it does not use too much fabric, which I love. I used about 70 cm from the giraffe fabric. After making photos our girl kept the nightgown on for the rest of the day (we were not going outside anymore) and slept in it. So it was a great succes!
