Not on the 2012 Goal List but D.O.N.E.

Ah yes. I had the fabric. The table was clear. And changing the thread in the overlocker went smoothly.

Fabric: a single knit cotton - loud apricot with maroon line drawings of flowers
Pattern: an old by the fortnight series called 'Make It Easy' pattern 9 Marshall Cavendish 1984
Modifications: No neck binding - just overlocked and then turned and top stitched and a button placket added for ease of access. No buttonholes, I used soft velcro under the buttons.
Sewn: a simple nightie with button placket (that looks quite loud in colour)

Yes, I'm proud of the finish on the placket!
