Little girls nightgown 2014 by Speattle
A birthday gift for my 4 year old granddaughter. Last year I made her a warm cozy flannel nightgown, but this year she lives in a very warm climate, so a lightweight sleeveless gown is what she needs.
I got this pattern from a seller on Ebay as it is OOP. It matches a toddler sized pattern I already own and I'm happy to have it in a bigger girl size too.
This pattern calls for a lace edging around the neckline and armholes and for the edge to be just turned back and stitched down raw. I tried binding it using fold over elastic and it works great. I'll remember this trick for future projects.
Update December 4 2014: My daughter took a cute picture of my sweet granddaughter sleeping in her new nightie and suggested I upload it here. So I did!
I guess it works. She is fast asleep!
