Sewing a Vintage Nightgown

At the end of October, I heard about an online sewing party (Vintage Pajama Party Sew Along) and wanted to join in.  I had just received a bunch of vintage patterns from my aunt and was itching to make something.

In an earlier blog post, I posted a picture of my fabric and two patterns.  Well, November has been really busy for me.   I should have just started when I got my fabric.  This month, I injured my left shoulder at crossfit (deep bruise), then I had a tubal ligation, and tomorrow morning I leave to go to PA for a little bit.

The first pinning!
The two halves of my nightgown are officially connected.

The tension on my sewing machine was giving me SO much trouble!  I had to stop a few times.  I wish that was a gun instead of just pistol-finger.  I really hate my machine sometimes.

I take pictures of myself.
They always come out blah.
I had some troubles with my sewing machine.  I'm going to take it in to get it checked out.  This pattern?  Easy peasy, but took forever with my dumbass machine.  Its a little tight around the bust, but I also had a bra and tank top on too.

If I get a chance to work on the robe, I'll get that done for the sewing party too.


  1. Oh goody! I've just decided to join the vintage pajama party sew along, and im glad to see others are doing nightgowns :)

  2. I am always searching online for articles that can help me. There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think you made some good points in Features also. Keep working, great job! best sewing machine
