We used to always get new jammies at Christmastime so I wanted to carry that tradition on with my girls. They are girly-girls at heart -- that means dresses chosen over pants and nighties over pjs. Not many stores carry nighties, though, or if they do they are not nearly long enough or ruffly enough.
This pattern runs big, really big. I learned from last year and made a size 2 with size 3 length for my 3 year old and a size 3 with about 4 inches extra length for my 6 year old.
It's a very easy pattern -- no closures so it comes together quickly. I really like the neckline and think it would make a cute summer dress, too. Mostly though, I'm just happy that they are happy with them. My littlest would rather stay in her new nightie than get dressed to go out!
