Summertime. Lightweight cotton nightgowns. Ruffles. *sigh*
I wanted to make a nightgown for my friend's daughter. She's almost 3, which is perfect for a summer nightgown, don't you think? My own, at 11 and 1 year are too old and too little... and I wasn't ready to toss aside the fabric combo I used on the Chloe quilt, so I whipped up this little number.
So I made this one for Emma, who is girly and loves frilly things. I also love the simple button detail. I handsewed a lot of it waiting for my eldest at the dentist office.
I went a little overboard with the embroidery and rick-rack... but who cares? We had 2 episodes of 24 to catch up on last night and I needed something to keep my hands busy so they weren't full of snacky things.
I can't wait to see little Emma twirl around in her new fancy nightclothes!
