Alana loves her princess frocks and mum and dad struggle to get her into PJ's so my Son asked if I could make her a nightdress.
One of my trips to Walthamstow market sent me in the direction of a very pretty pink heart fabric that was shouting Alana's name. This is a sheer fabric so needed to be lined and I had a nice soft light-weight knit that was perfect for the job, but I left the sleeves sheer.
This pattern started as an age 3, and while Alana will be 3 in July, she is an age 2 in the big 4 patterns.
I had to reduce the sleeve length by about 4" and the dress length by 4" too. The bodice was also a little large, so I just inserted some elastic around the bodice to pull it tighter to her body, but still allowing for her to grow.
I'll drop this off tomorrow for her and hopefully she will not put up such a fight when dressing her for bed.
Hope you are having a good weekend. Catch you later.............
