    I second the blazer idea so great for boys and girls!

    I’ll second knit tops, a blazer and overalls.

    But I’d really, really love a nice dressing gown pattern.

    And definitely some size labels (with that gorgeous sewing machine Liesl&Co logo) as I keep forgetting what i’ve made and in what size.

    Labels? Yes please,I am a labels junkie.

    I would love to see an o+s polo top with a girls/boys sleeve/collar option.

    A Lieslfied (I made that word up but isn’t it a goodie)? zipper fly would be marvellous!

    I recently purchased a pattern for zipper front trousers and the instructions were about as much good as udders on a bull!

    I second the dressing gown/ bathrobe pattern. And labels would be lovely – my daughter was only saying she’d like a label on her clothes to help her know which is the correct way ’round (she was talking about her pj pants at the time).

    Zipper fly trousers and shorts would be fab as would the polo top – that would be great for us mums who sew school uniforms.

    I know I am second-ing alot but I have ideas block and everyone has such great ideas I can’t help but agree.

    I would like a new blouse pattern.

    Labels! Where you could write in the size on a permanent ink pen!

    A polo shirt with Peter pan color and cap sleeve for girl and the unisex collar/sleeve for boy or girl.

    And a long sleeve option. Yes!

    Blouse with long sleeves.

    I would like to timidly add girls nightie to the wish list. I don’t know if it has already been requested (11 pages is a lot to look through!) My daughter only wears PJ’s when coerced into it. She has wanted a nightie just like Wendy wears in Peter Pan for ages and I can’t find any pattern that looks close. I would just be happy with a shift style sleeveless number but with pretty details.

    Oh and I third the dressing gown idea. With or without hood!

    Fourth-ing on the dressing gown, but pleeeeese no wrap and tie! They never stay closed, or tied. Something elegant, with buttons or snaps, perhaps with a raglan sleeve — like this one (which I made in size 2 but can’t find bigger!): Simplicity 5217 Simplicity 5217

    Really, I’ve looked — there’s nothing like this in stores…

    katybellabug – have you thought of making either the hopscotch or badminton dress as a nightie for your girl?

    LINK
    katybellabug @katybellabug

    I am sorely tempted to buy the badminton pattern just for that purpose and the hopscotch is on my wish list but am putting off buying it because I don’t have a serger. I have a fear of knits which I am hoping to overcome.

    Katy listen to me carefully as I shall say this only once! Feel the fear but do it anyway! The only way to conquer your fear of knits is be getting in there and having a go. The pattern is fabulous, you obviously know that already because you have it on your wish list. Your daughter will love it too – my daughter uses her dress as nighties because they are so comfortable and I did my first one without a serger! If your machine can cope with knits then why hesitate? I wouldn’t put off getting the badminton pattern either – I have mine but haven’t used it just yet but will very soon – trying it in knits in fact!

    There now I can get off the soap box!

    Is your daughter big enough for the Playdate pattern? You could adapt this for a winter nightie – Wendy style?

    I do understand though a designated night gown pattern would be wonderful.

    Knits can definatly be sewn on a regular sewing machine, just with a zigzag. Growing up all we had was a regular machine and we sewed with a small zigzag for the seams and then neatened with a large zigzag.

    I am planning on making the badminton as a nightie for Christmas.

    Tamara, I hang my head in shame! I’ll give it a go. I will have a look at a few Playdates on Flickr to see if I get the same idea as you. That is a new one on me!

    with love Heidi, thats a good tip to use 2 length of zig zag.Thanks! I am toying with the idea of a walking foot. Certainly cheaper than a serger!

    Honestly I never use a walking foot. I have one but find I get better results without, but I know lots of people love them. Give it a go.
