Its For the Birds Blog Hop--Day 4

Miss Z at 7 months old
If You can't tell by the name of my blog I love birds, especially sparrows!  Last year I turned a blouse pattern into a nightgown for my daughter and it worked out great!  Recently, Miss Z has gone through a large growth spurt and I felt it was time to makes more nightgowns so I turned once again to my yardage of birdy fabrics.  This time however I went with a different blouse pattern to convert!

I used I think Sew's Ella Raglan Blouse Pattern, I chose the Next size up from her current size and then I added about 4 inches.  It comes down to her ankles, but it will be up to her knees before too long!  I have two more of the exact nightgown in process only I plan to use a different colored biased tape where you see Pink.


Ready for bedtime in her new nightgown!
The following is not a newly finished project but I love the little birds from this line of fabric from Connecting threads!   I am hoping to get a little bit of yardage of the birdie print to make Miss Z some simple tops for this fall as it is still pretty warm here.
