The Sadie Grace nightgown!
This pattern is supposed to have a keyhole with the bias tape (colorful binding in this pic) hanging down- I messed up and bound the whole neckline, but with a 1.5 year old it's probably a good idea not have loose strings. I sewed up the 1-2 year old size, and when my skinny Minnie tried it on, it was off the shoulder! You can see my original neckline below.
Then I secured the bottom of the pinch with a few stiches- very technical sewing terms, huh?
The bias tape is 1/4" bias tape I made from cotton lawn for a future project for moi. I love th color. I didn't follow the directions in the pattern of sandwiching the bias tape around the neckline. I think I learned this from my first quilt (to be posted at a later date!), but you can open up the double fold bias tape and sew it in one side and then the other- for visual leathers, that won't help, I will work on a tutorial for the future, as it took me a long time and reading many different sources over the past few months to figure it out.

By way of quick update, thank you to my sis Katie/Poopykins and Melissa of A Happy Stitch for the encouragement about my almost complete baby boy romper. I thought all was lost and I'd have to wait til I saw my sis for Veterans Day weekend to sew the buttons, but I found my buttonhole foot late last night! Who am I kidding, I will probably wait til she can assist me, she is an engineer after all (thanks, Poopykins, love ya!).
Thanks for following along for my first KCWC! Thanks especially to my Mom for indulging me in my new fabric obsession (G Street fabric, anyone?)
