The girls were dreaming of new flannel nightgowns. How can a mother refuse? Jane was to be first, made up in lilac flannel with little pink roses.
I used the same pattern from last year but expanded the pattern margins by about a quarter inch and dropped the sleeve and skirt and hemline to allow for growth. Nightgowns are rather forgiving in the fit.
We added some lace trim,
a creamy pink button from Great-Mother's button tin,
and didn't skimp on the gathering for the puffed sleeves. Oh, little girls are so delicious to dress.
