My 10 year old daughter requested a long-sleeved flannel nightgown, so the search began! I was aghast at the cost of a ready-made flannel gown, so I started the search for an appropriate pattern.

I am NOT a highly experienced sewer, but I was willing to give this a try! After communicating with Jennie (who provided incredibly kind encouragement), I felt confident I could complete this project utilizing the Girls’ Regency Gown Pattern.

All I can say is “WOW!” The process of printing, piecing & cutting this pattern was so incredibly easy. The dress came together like a dream.

It’s not perfect, but Marianne is beyond thrilled with it!!

THANK YOU JENNIE for providing such wonderful encouragement & for the wonderful pattern. You have definitely helped boost my confidence in my sewing abilities. God Bless!

Whee! These emails absolutely make my day. I love hearing from folks who aren’t too confident about their sewing skills but sail through a pattern and are thrilled with the results. And what great results, Rebecca! I can tell your daughter is as pleased as punch, and anyone can see why. This is a darling nightgown. Well done, and here’s to ongoing sewing adventures!

  1. This is gorgeous. I love it. I also want to make nightgowns for my toddler with merino wool. I’m disgusted that the only flannel nightgown for toddlers are polyester and treated with toxic flame retardants. I’m now inspired. Thank you.
