The plan was to spend most of the weekend sewing.  That didn't quite happen, but it didn't totally not happen, either.  We take what we can get around here.

Mom felt badly that we were using up the holly flannel pillowcases she had made to go with my Christmas quilt.  I had a lot left over from the nightgown so I made two new pillowcases out of that, to put away for later.

I went to Joann to look for the postage-stamp print flannel they have online.  They didn't have it, but they did have--are you sitting down?--David Bowie French bulldogs:

I mean--what the almighty heck is that?

On the other hand: Who cares?

I bought out the bolt.  I need a pillowcase.  And pajamas.  And to hoard the scraps like pirate's gold.  Because OMG freaking awesome.

The girl at the cutting table sadly announced over the PA that the "David Bowie Frenchies have left the building".  She said it was her favorite print in a long time.

It will be a nightshirt: McCall's 7341 (1980):

Flannel was on sale so I got an end-of-bolt of Volkswagen campers.  It's short so I need to get some solid to make contrast cuffs, but it's nice, soft, thick, flannel, it's Volkswagens, and it's cute in a sloppy, "I don't really understand midcentury design" kind of way:

This print, though, does understand midcentury design.  Huge dirndl skirt, here we come!

White blouse, black cardigan, black heeled loafers, amirite?

I had to sew later:

But she finally did let me finish the Christmas pillowcase for the mini-pillow.
