I bought this fabric earlier this year and then wondered later what I had been thinking at the time……must have been a heck of a deal? A closer inspection really made me think of cows & not animal print for a long sleeve top which is what I had at first thought I would use it for. So I decided it would need to be made into a nightgown which will have a very limited audience! I took one of my tried & tested as successful knit top patterns: SIMPLICITY 3790 which may not be available anymore as I have had this pattern awhile – but you could adapt many different patterns or use a nightgown pattern) I simply extended the hem length by a good 20 or so inches on my knit top pattern – view 3 + I used the long sleeves from view D. I made the sleeves a lot narrower but the cuff was still a bit wide hence adding elastic as mentioned below.
I decided it needed something to break the cow pattern going on there so I made a scallop trim using black t-shirt fabric. Search in the box to the upper right of this post for previous posts about making your own scallop trim – basically just use the blind hem stitch but check out the post(s) for more information.
