I'm not sure why, but I love sewing plackets.
They're fiddly, and require patience. I use Liesl's excellent instructions from her Jump Rope Dress (as my own patterns come without instructions).
I'm not sure if this is a nightie or a dress. It is inspired by this top. I will have to wait to see it on Adelaide before I decide.
I'm not that happy with the sleeves. I think I'll have to redraft them so they go all the way around the armhole - more like the top that inspired this one. I'm not very good at drafting sleeves. I might have to drag out an old patternmaking book for a bit of guidance.
Until I perfect the sleeve, I can see this is going to be a nightie.
Oh, and the fabric is a Lecien print from the "Princess Rose" collection.
