Tata's Bata

I finally gave my grandmother her Christmas present....yeah I know...it's almost February. Honeslty, I didn't even think about making her a gift until I saw Mimi J. was making one for her grandmother who, sadly, has since passed away.

Christmas Day I gave Tata (that is her pet name, given by my eldest brother who couldn't pronouce abuela when he was a toddler) an I.O.U promising I would make her a bata (nightgown) as she desired. She wanted a long gown with 13 inch sleeves in purple because she knows that it is my favorite color. This being the first time I've sewn a garment for someone else, I was delighted that she loved it!!

I used view B of Kwik-Sew 2172. I highly recommend it if you want to make something for your for the lil ole lady in your life.

This was few seconds before she made the cutest face...She liked it!!

She is stylin' with her matching slippers!!!


I sneaked a back pic :-)

aww, she looks great! My grandma used to wear those exact same nightgowns (though hers weren't quite so lovingly made!)...

Too Cute. Ok, now i'm sad. She looks so much like my best friend, and love, my Granny, who passed a few years ago. :( You did a great job!
