Sewing Again!

Our grand daughter is turning TEN!
This is a biggie, it's a double digit
I wanted to make a special gift for her.
The last time she spent the night,
 she mentioned that she wanted a nightgown
 and bathrobe like mine.
(my heart melted)

So, off to the fabric store 
to look for cute and girly patterns.
Not easy!

It was hard to find a feminine robe pattern.
Most were unisex types.

I found just the right one that is cute, feminine
 and easy

I had some ribbon that must be old as me.
 I remember seeing it in my mother's sewing basket, when I was young.
(and I kept it all these years!)

It was perfect for the detail trim.
Plus, it added a little history.

I used some eyelet lace to make it even
more girly and feminine. 

I like how the front opening is curved.

Perfect for a young lady
turning ten years old!

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

~Jeremiah 29:11~


  1. Oh MY Goodness... I love it!
    It is the sweetest gift for a little young lady! She will remember it for all her days. And to think you had that ribbon from your own Mothers sewing basket. I really love it all! You did a great job!

  3. I can't believe Lulu is almost 10! Wasn't she just born the other day? The robe is just perfect. And to think you have ribbon from your mom! That makes it so very special.

  4. I cannot believe Lulu is turning ten. Wow. You did a BEAUTIFUL job creating a gift of love for her! Love how you used your mom's ribbon... generations of love. Happy Birthday, Lulu! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  7. How precious! Love how it turned out and she will be so happy. My oldest grandgirl will be 13 this Sunday! They grow up way to fast! Happy Easter. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. I know I say this all the time, Christine, but you really are an amazing grandmother. Your granddaughter will love her special gift and the history behind it. Hugs, Nancy

  9. What a darling robe. I have found that vintage patterns on ebay and etsy offer glorious feminine styles of days gone by. May you enjoy all of gloriousness of spring and a truly wonderful week.

  10. OH my goodness, Christine, the gown is priceless, I too love the way it curves! I so envy those who are gifted with their hands, I know you are really going to enjoy sewing for your granddaughter, wishing het the most blessed and happiest of birthdays!
