I'm so happy to be apart of another EYMM blog tour. I've had the Everyday Essentials Set for awhile - and this gave me the push to go ahead and make it. Also - since this is for Valentine's and my husband is taking me away on a trip, I thought I'd make one that he might like on me. I get accused of dressing like a nun when I sleep  - so this is definitely not nun like.

I used a brushed nylon from Zenith and Quasar for mine. I was going to use it for the bands, but came across some galaxy print foldover elastic (FOE) that I thought would look really cute. I'm allergic to latex and can't wear elastic, but figured I probably won't actually wear this very long - if you catch my drift.

The pattern has many different options - bralette, slip, and different gown lengths.

 This pattern was easy to put together. The top has a hidden band to hold everything in place. The skirt portion was a little slim on me, and I'll probably make it fuller on my next one. I'll also just do a knit band instead of the FOE.

The crossover is not too revealing and would make a great summer tank. I made the shortest skirt length after the cami length. The length is perfect for me. Covers just enough.

I really like the coverage of the back - my bra I was wearing for the photos - peeked out just a little bit.

I took these photos after being sick for a few days - and my nose looked horrible from being snotty. So I decided to cut my head off in these.

If you are looking for a cute night gown, or even a casual summer top - this pattern is worth a try. I bought it to make some tops to wear with my pajama pants. Not that I see how easy the pattern is - I'll be making a few more for summer.
