inside: get free sewing patterns to create these adorable mommy and me nightgowns. Sew coordinating holiday nightgowns for yourself and your little ones.
I wanted to use some gorgeous Christmas fabric I had recently purchased and I decided Rose and I needed some new nightgowns… I grabbed a couple of my free sewing patterns and then created these adorable coordinating nightgowns for us. They are so cozy and we both have been enjoying them!
Mommy and Me Nightgowns with free patterns-
Ready to sew an amazingly cozy nightgown for yourself? I’ve got all the details for you here in this post… Below is a video that will walk you through making the whole project, but you can also read the details below.
Let’s take a look at few photos of the finished nightgowns first.

Holiday nightgowns supplies-
Here are the details for the nightgowns…. I used the free womens raglan and free kids raglan for the base and then hacked the pattern. I’ll show you the hacks below, but here are the links to download the free sewing patterns from my shop.
The vinyl is of course optional, but I think it adds a cute detail. You can cut it with your electronic cutting machine and heat transfer vinyl. Remember to cut the image in reverse with the vinyl. Here is a post with my tips for heat transfer.
As explained in the video the video the nightgown was cut from the raglan pattern and I used the size I would normally wear. I measured from my shoulder to just above my knee and cut the shirt that length instead of the shirt length.
I did flare out about an inch on each side of the shirt, but not a bunch. I wanted it more fitted, but you could create a bigger flare for sure. You can also make it longer if you want.
You can see here how mine looks pretty straight down. This means it is fitted throughout the hip area.
I had to color block Rose’s nightgown as I didn’t have enough fabric. You can also see I flared out the sides a bit more too with this version.
I pieced the front, added the vinyl, then sewed up the shirt as normal. I used an old Men’s shirt for the red part so I was able to reuse the original hem as well. I love when I don’t have to hem!
There you have them! My cozy nightgowns… I love the soft knit fabric have enjoyed the cozy feel. It’s gotten cold here this week so I’m appreciating my new pjs!
