Description

I don't think nightdress cases are that popular at the moment but these things seem to come in and out of fashion!

I'm making this as part of a set that I and some friends are making as a joint venture.  I'm making this and a decorative figure, another lady is making a nightdress and another lady is making an overnight bag with a separate toilet bag.  We're all using plain lawn, Liberty's Betsy lawn print in pink and some of this lilac toned linen / cotton blend fabric (apart from the decorative figure although she will be wearing a dress made from the Betsy print).

I've hand quilted the case quite simply and have used the same cross hatch pattern to hand quilt the minitaure quilted bed applique on the front.  I used white lawn for the backing and 'sheet' and pillow applique detail and the quilt is actually open at the top so you can access a little secret pocket under the frill of the pillow - a detail I would have loved as a little girl!

I have to admit I had to look up what a nightdress case was. I know it should have been self explanatory but sometimes my brain doesn't function. This is super cute. I love the little bed you made and your colors are gorgeous. Your hand quilting is amazing. I can barely hand stich my bindings on my quilts without some blood, sweat, and tears. This is a really beautiful handmade gift for a very lucky individual. Beautiful!!!

Thanks Skynme smile I think that nightdress cases might be a bit of a Brit thing and not in fashion right now - but we should bring em back!
