My Mom has made a lot of nighties for her granddaughters, and some fewer PJs for her sole grandson (he was the last to come along, and she hates making pants!). Here's a silly pic from a several-years-ago family vacation - all her grandkids at once, all wearing the nightclothes she made for them!
I appliqued labels from bits of embroidery Mom had put on some of the bodices. A little puffy but there are several layers there!
I had a blast making these; I can honestly say there's love in every stitch. BTW, if you don't know this already, sashing is your bestest friend when it comes to making disparate fabrics "play nice" together. And purple is WAY underrated.
