Pattern Review: McCalls M2476

This is not the 1st time I have used this McCalls M2476 pattern. 3 years ago I made 2 sets of flannelette pyjamas from the pattern. Unfortunately, I didn’t take photos at the time and now they look very loved so no photos will be taken.

The 1st time I made the top I used the facing that the pattern required. Not the best move. I am not a fan of facings in most instances. So this time with the nightie I used a bias facing on the neckline and the armholes.

So, my 1st nightie from this pattern is using a polyester from my stash. It is soft and very slippery so it was not a delight to sew but the bias facings made it a bit easier to complete. Also instead of hemming the bottom of it, I added some lace from my stash. Also, I think it looks a bit short on me so this added length. (I didn’t photograph myself in it due to this). My fault I should have adjusted the pattern before cutting.

It is very roomy but that is what makes it comfy, I suppose I should have gone down a size but it is no hardship to adjust if need be. Also, I don’t wear nighties to bed so there is no comfort level to consider while sleeping.
