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.
Very cute, and you have a lovely model! :) Good work on the upsizing- nothing wrong with a too-big nightgown. It's more cozy that way.
It looks great, one would never know you Grandma Weavered it!
So, no sleep pants for Miss Genevieve? I just recently returned to nightgowns after decades in sleep pants/t-shirt. I really enjoy them. You make me wish I had a flannel gown! It would be perfect this time of year!
I'm not sure which is more darling, the nightie or the model.
BLD, she wants to wear dresses all the time, which does NOT, I have learned, mean skirts or pants. I indulge her when I can (she needed something to sleep in - I can make a nightie). But here in the thrifty household, she needs to wear what is easy to provide. And most of the time, she doesn't kick a fuss.
I love the IDEA of nighties, but they always end up twisted around my knees, ha, so I wear very nice thrifted flannel jammies :)
what a sweet gown. g looks so cute.
You did great, Margo! :-)
Several of my girls have almost always been "and it's not pants" kind of gals, too.
