More hot weather is coming. The calendar might say autumn but the message hasn't got through. Daytime temperatures for the next week or so are all over 30 and the nights are not much better. Ugh.
Hot nights call for cool cotton so both girls have new short pyjamas and I have finally remade my favourite nightgown. I bought the original version about a decade ago and loved it from the first minute I put it on. I continued to wear it long past respectability but finally had to acknowledge its passing and it has been sitting in my sewing room ever since waiting for me to cut a pattern from it. The pattern should have been an easy make but turned out be a frustrating fiddle, not least because I'm learning the ins and outs of a new sewing machine. Now that it is finished I am glad I persisted and I am about to pop the end result in the washing machine to be ready for bed tonight.
