Princess has a birthday this week and she needs some new nighties. I have made her a couple in the past using the same pattern. She loves them so much she has insisted on wearing them even though they are woefully too small.

The knit for both came from stash. The ruffle on the floral is more narrow because I had to squeeze a size 6 out of the absolute minimum of fabric. The ruffle is even pieced to have enough length to gather. I have no idea how old the floral is but I suspect it could be 15 to 20 years old.
The other knit is a Sea Island knit I bought a couple of years ago with princely frogs and pink bugs. Her brother will be most intrigued by those bugs until he gets a gander at those pink ladybugs and crowns. He will then declare "dat for girls"
Don't be too impressed with the bows on the front, they are just slapped on there so she knows which is the front. :)
And since it is her birthday a new dress is in the works. Need to finish up so I can get it in the mail. Some things never change. This Bear Threads pique is a dream to work with.
