Pattern Used:
McCall's 6642 - Unisex Sleepwear (Out of Print)

Pattern Description:
Wonderfully simple sleepwear pattern - great for beginners, or to use up all that flannel you buy on sale! Smiley

Pattern Sizing:
Since it's sleepwear, it's meant to be loose and comfortable.  I cut out size L for my husband, who has a 43" chest and a little bit of a belly.  It fits him beautifully and comfortably.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yep!  I did two of these - one with the pocket, one without. 

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow.  Everything was clear and concise.

What did you particularly like  or dislike about the pattern?
I can't think of anything that I disliked, honestly.  I really enjoyed working with this pattern - it went together beautifully, all the pieces matched up nicely, sizing seems accurate, and it turns out a nice, solid garment. 

Fabric Used:
100% cotton flannel in a pirate pattern. Smiley

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
None, other than omitting the optional chest pocket.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely.  I plan on making myself one, and probably another one for my husband.  He really loves it - and it's a great way to use up all that cheap flannel I keep buying and have no specific use for. Wink

Wonderful, easy pattern - great for beginners, and great way to bulk up your sleepwear collection.  Highly recommended!

Looks great!  I'm happy to see that another male likes long nightshirts.  My son loves them and they are difficult to find.  I'll have to try sewing my own.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Oooh, thanks for the review!
My mum made my toddler son some night shirts for christmas to match his pa (my dad loves night shirts too).
It looks really well made and your hubby is being a great sport and fantastic model!.
Um.. just a question, what is that green stuff on your plates?

*lol* My husband's family's Christmas tradition is 'green eggs and ham' for Christmas breakfast.  The green stuff is scrambled eggs with green food coloring.  They look gross, but it makes him happy and it doesn't affect how the eggs taste. Wink
