PATTERN DETAILS

Riley's nightgown and sleep shirt pattern came about after hearing repeated requests from moms looking for more gender neutral options for a sleep shirt made from soft knit fabrics. There are many cotton woven patterns on the market for traditional night/sleep shirts that are unisex but knits really are more comfy! The first thing that came to mind were my two boys, and how much they love to sleep in dad's old shirts. This raglan sleepwear is inspired by some of the sports t-shirts, of my husbands, that the boys love to wear to bed. It has two length options a longer, more traditional, girls length gown and a shorter, gender neutral long shirt. The hem facing is an easy finish, with all the detailed pictures, and gives a clean finished look with a peek-a-boo hem. Riley's nightgown and sleep shirt pattern offers 19 sizes for both boys and girls from newborn to youth 18, one pattern covering infants, toddlers, youth & tweens! Additional directions are not included for these options, BUT you could mix it up by using lace underwear elastic on the neckline for girls, add a contrasting cuff to the sleeve or use contrasting knit binding to finish the bottom hem, instead of the hem facings. Make sure to read the directions BEFORE printing off all the pages. This pattern is includes a ebook .PDF file with 17 pages of instructions, photos & diagrams. It also includes 26 professionally digitized pages in the same file & page print guide that you assemble to make the full sizes pieces (10-16 pages per size group). My easy no trimming method makes the pattern assembly a breeze!

My shop name comes from the name of my crafting blog... Everything Your Mama Made & More! which can be found at www.everythingyourmamamade.com. All patterns are designed, written & digitized by me, a stay at home mom to 5 wonderful kids! My husband and I have an 8 yr old gamer, very identical 6yr old twin fashionistas, an almost 3 yr old who is all boy & a 1 yr old princess that has us all wrapped around her squishy little fingers. I have been sewing and blogging about it for years including drafting my own patterns. As my twins have gotten older they have shown they have quite the fashion sense and I still want to sew for them & they still want me to sew, but they wanted more modern trendy styles. My 3 girls and I LOVE to sit & roam pinterest for inspiration, the twins will often draw me sketches of what they want and I love being able to full fill those requests. Well once I started drafting patterns for recent clothes friends and my husband encouraged me to start making them to sell... a week later my first 2 patterns were in testing and on their way to the shop! I strive to provide a variety of patterns at different levels there are cute wearable clothes for a variety of ages & sizes. Most of my patterns offer 9+ size options with multiple views. Many of my girls patterns also come in womens sizes so you will find bundle packs for those saving you 10-20% if you buy them at once. Kymy
