I'm Batman

Batman pyjamas

Batman collar
On a rare shopping opportunity I found some Batman fabric. As my son needed new long pyjamas (last years are way too short already) I purchased a mere metre (because it was $20m) and used some grey poplin from my stash to make him some more. Hopefully they are long enough to make it through next years winter as well. I used the Batman print for the front and collar of the shirt, and added a pocket on the pants.

Warm woolen dressing gown

I managed to finish my warm woolen dressing gown in time
for the cold weather.
(How far away is Spring??)
I decided not to line it afterall. I am making a gown out of the lining instead.
Still deciding whether to have long sleeves or not.

I kept the original blanket stitching as the hem. Originally I did this to the sleeves as well, and the realised they were way too drafty.
So I finished them with a ribbed cuff instead.
I am very pleased with the results - a beautiful woolen gown for a mere $10.
 from an online garage sale.
And a mid season gown for $0 from gifted stretch satin.
