First up, a whole PJ set for my 3 year old (yep, he had a birthday - we're moving up in life!) - - I think as a set it's too cute! It was my first time using a vintage pattern (although nothing says non-vintage like tacky cars novelty fabric) - hopefully when I get him to try them on I'll do a whole post about it....
Next up, matching (well, matching opposites) girl and doll nightgowns for my girls. Nightgowns are kind of hard to come by, and they love them, so I thought I'd try making them. I have a friend who has a shop that sells these sets (Hollyberrys, here - she's got a couple of sets left, so if you want one for Christmas, snag it quick!) which made me think, I can do that. I think to get that boutique look, you make the sleeves and hem in a different fabric than the main body of the nightgown. These are flannel so I think they'll be snuggly warm. It was my first attempt at doll clothes - those things are tiny! So overall, I think these nightgown are kind of tacky, with the fabric choice and all, but I know my girls will LOVE them.
