ok first off is a tunic. sophie hates the pattern of the fabric, but loves the style. I made the pattern using the tape method (go round the seam edges with tape, fill in centre with tape, remove, stick to newspaper) and one of her existing tunics.

as she hates it, it's on Etsy.

here's her new nightie, made using the same pattern lol. only this time, I sort of miscalculated seam allowances and made it huge for some reason. anyway it's a second hand cot sheet and some left over ribbon. I useed the hems of the sheet as the hems of the garment. I hate hemming.

Me: "sophie, please. just one, nice smile"
