There are so many wonderful ideas on Pinterest, and this is one of them! Is this not the sweetest little girl's nightgown? Of course, I think my model is pretty sweet too... (:
It was very simple to make, and although the original nightgown was made with a vintage pillow slip, I didn't have one so I just used 1/2 yard of fabric. Since the fabric was on clearance, it just cost me $2.50, plus about $3 for the roll of wide lace and we were set. I just gathered up the skirt at the chest, making it to be a couple inches more than Miss E's chest measurement, sewed the lace on, and added some straps.
