I know I said "Nightgown" in the title. But I did not mean to make a nightgown. I wanted a daytime dress, but I used a flannel fabric and the dress looks like a nightgown. I could not take Momo outside wearing it, so now it is a nightgown.
I used Mccall's pattern M6388. This is view C dress, without the halfway ruffle and the sleeve bindings. I used elastics for the sleeves, because they are more practical.
I actually did a practice run and made a top first. The size 3T turned out way too big for my daughter, though the lengthwise it was shorter than I liked. So when I made this dress, I used size 2T and cut the bodice narrower and longer. The sleeves were too long, so I shortened them. I also made the sleeves narrow, but I made them too narrow, causing them to lose the cute big sleeve look :(
I saw many cute flannel prints at Jo-Ann, and thought they should not be just limited to blankets and pajamas. But this print in this dress design screams "nightgown." Momo and I bought this fabric together. I chose many prints at the store, but Momo only liked two of them, and this one was her favorite (because it is pink...). Momo even bragged other Jo-Ann shopper that she chose this print (technically, I chose it and Momo approved it...)
I added ric-rac and bright buttons, hoping they will make the dress look less like a pajama, but they did not help...
At least the dress may look cute in the Christmas pictures?
Momo ate a candy for the first time. It was a candy cane she got from Santa. She did not try to eat Halloween candies, but this one she really wanted to eat it. So I let her have a little. I think she enjoyed eating the candy more than the candy itself.
Linking up to those fun parties.
