Jumping the gun

I'm jumping the gun a little on the Elsie Marley KCWC.

I got this easy little number cut out and ready to go last night, so just had to put it together.

Of course Pepsi had to be in on the action...

Miss G is nightie mad and rather than have a war with her each night to get her to wear PJ's, I decided to make her a few new nighties that I actually don't mind putting on her!

Taking modelling tips from her 16 year old cousin
She's currently been wearing old versions of this pattern I made for her sisters about 3 years ago so I knew the size would be spot on.

It's a very basic pattern - New Look 6641- nightie with the sleeve from the PJ's of view D - she likes a puffed sleeve.

Made with some of my very lovely stretch fabric - which I intend to use for tops too - it's too nice just for sleepwear.

Nice job Karen! She looks totally cute. And my goodness, I think she will be as tall as her sisters soon - she appears to have shot up! :)
