This nightgown is very special to Audra. I always tell her that mama made jammies are like sleeping snuggled up with a hug from mama. This nightgown is from her dad's old shirt, so she says it's like sleeping in a hug from both mom AND dad.
It's funny how these pics don't look that different, but trust me, they are! I cut off the collar and the area around the shoulders. I tailored the bottom part to fit Audra at her shoulders. I cut the cuffs off and made them into the new, rounded collar. I cut and gathered the sleeves to make them puffed at the top and elastic at the bottom. It doesn't look that different, but it truly is!
Here's the before/after.
I think you can see here more how it's tailored. She loves it!
