The local fabric shop had lovely new floral viscose fabrics and I couldn’t resist this tropical fabric. I had just the perfect pattern for it on my Sensible Sewing Challenge list: The Sew Over It Penny Dress. This is now my favourite dress pattern having made two dresses and the blouse with it. (Btw. They just published this former pdf-only pattern as a printed pattern, so check it out if you hate cutting and pasting pdf-patterns together!) However, I do recommend not snipping the fabric underneath your arms that the instructions say. You can very easily sew the side seams and then hem the sleeves or do what I did…

This is a free tutorial on how to make a jumpsuit out of the Kielo dress by Named clothing. I love my own Kielo jumpsuit and want to share the instructions!
Junebug dress pattern is a pattern for a dress and not a nightie. However, the colouring, the fabric choice and the vintage look makes it look more of a nightie to me.
So, my challenge to myself and for anyone else wanting to take part is to make a set of basics that I will actually wear. I selected 10 patterns that I think will fit in this category and I'm going to make all of them.
