So my dad likes to sleep in nightshirts...the kind I can picture Ben Franklin wearing.  My sister & I have teased him over the years for it, but it's kind of his thing.  As you can imagine, they are not always that easy to find in stores.  He also wears a lot of Hawaiian shirts - it's kind of his thing too.  Anyway, I have made him a few nightshirts for him in the past with fishing or train novelty prints (his interests).  But after he went to visit my sister a couple weeks ago and she complained about him dragging her around to look for Hawaiian shirts, I had an inspiration.  I would make him a Hawaiian nightshirt!  So here it is (McCall's M6231).

My husband is modeling it & he didn't want his face in a pic of him wearing a "dress" so don't mind that.   Wink

Inspiration without application is moot.

This is great. You are a good daughter for making whatever makes your dad's heart sing.

And I love how your husband covered his face. Too funny!
