A Duvet Cover and What-turned-out-to-be a Nightie

This is my new duvet cover. I made it out of my stash. Years ago, I dreamed of a denim bed ensemble and I had a large comfy denim comforter and I bought this fabric to make pillows and a bed skirt. Well, the denim comforter is gone, I don't know where, and I decided to make this fabric into a duvet cover. Yes, I made the pillow shams too (ages ago).

I was so excited to have a new duvet cover, I actually put it on the duvet before affixing buttonholes. (No super long zipper for me. I figure five button holes will look better.

My finished seams...(and plans to make button holes on the cover this weekend).

I started this dress with the idea of having a nice summer dress. I started it ages ago and have since misplaced the pattern. So, I winged the rest. The good news is I finished it. But, it isn't that flattering on me -actually it just doesn't suit me at all. So its a nightie now.

I spent quite a bit of time on the case for this pull - something I worked out on my own and was really doing via trial and error.

It worked.

I even made my own bias trim! (Thanks to this tutorial at Colette)

So, here is my new, lined nightie. (Unless I lose twenty pounds....)


  1. Wonderful! I love the duvet...

  2. I put velcro on the duvet cover I made. Very easy.

  3. We've all been there Nothy. You have the right idea calling it a nightie. At least you'll still get wear out of it. I trashed a coat I made a few years ago because it was more tight-fitting than I realized. It was my size but not enough ease in the coat made it feel more snug than I cared for!

  4. What cozy nights you'll have now.

  5. Great duvet cover, and love that you were able to turn a difficult dress into a still functioning garment. It looks like it will be a beautiful nightie!

  6. Nightie or dress - who cares when you MADE YOUR OWN BINDING?! So envious of your mad skills.

  7. That's a great nightie!

  19. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
