Last summer, I decided that it might be fun to sew a summer nightie using a vintage pattern I found at a thrift store, from some of my stashed vintage sheets. I paired two of my lightest weight, all cotton sheets and even added a touch of vintage ric rac to the yoke to make the perfect summer sleepwear!

Temperatures have heated up again, calling for something light and comfortable. Time to make another vintage nightie!

Sewing something pretty and practical, while giving new life to vintage materials always makes me happy! I particularly enjoy sewing items from vintage sheets - from quilts (here and here), lounge pants (here and here) and even shopping bags (here)!
