I made it with a pattern and pink striped flannel from Mrs. R. But I really Grandma Weavered the size: it was a size 2-3-4 pattern and Genevieve is almost 6. I just cut it out bigger - not recommended, I know, but as this was a loose nightie, I thought it was worth the experiment. Turns out, the nightie might be big enough for next year too.
It's pink. It's not pants. It has a kitty button. Genevieve is very pleased.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
