Very simple to create the look - cardigan and nightie purchased at local car boot sale, specs are reading glasses bought for 1.99 with lenses popped out, and 'Sophie's Dream' is a Mason jar lined with tissue paper and battery operated LED fairy lights.

#simplicitysewingchallenge.  This is made with Simplicity Vintage Pattern 1365, Style B as part of the 2016 Simplicity Sewing Challenge. The fabric used is an original vintage print "Jonelle Duracolor - Daisy Chain". I found it at the local car boot sale, and think it was a curtain in a previous life! I used some contrasting bias binding to accentuate the collar. It was great fun sourcing the fabric and putting the garment together using this funky pattern!
