In the heat of the day, savvy sewers find a cool place to sew.
There’s still time to sew up a cool ensemble!
One of our favourite patterns for a summer quickie is #401 Nightgown PJ.
Don’t be fooled by its name; you can sew a whole lot more than sleepwear with this versatile pattern.
This cap-sleeve top made from cool, breathable rayon with added piping is taken directly from the PJ Top pattern. The style offers a loose fit for cool comfort on hot days. Pair it up with shorts, a skirt or capri pants.
Here we’ve taken the Nightgown pattern and turned it into a cool beach dress using a beautiful Hawaiian print in viscose rayon.
A couple tweaks transformed a nightgown to a beach dress. Check out the Pattern Extenders for detailed instructions.
