Hi!  I am Joanne and today starts my first blog!  I am so excited to document my creations!  It's my corner of the world, so to speak!  Here goes....

My first creation of 2010 is a Butterick sewing pattern #4910 and I purchased the fabric from Hobby Lobby.  Isn't it just too cute?  When I saw this fabric I knew it was meant to be a nightgown for my soon-to-be 4-year-old niece, Kate, who loves everything girly and princessy!  (Her birthday is in a few days)
I also made her a matching headband.  What princess does not have a matching accessory?

As far as a pattern is concerned, it was fairly an easy pattern, but I will construct it differently then the instructions recommend.  I am always looking for a better, maybe faster way of sewing patterns.  Sigh!  If I could only follow directions!  This really is a great pattern and I would highly recommend trying it.  Imagine doing the sleeves and the ruffle in a coordinating fabric... How fun would that be?
Enjoy and until next post,

This is so adorable and very girly. Love the touch with the ribbon and button.
