was from a pattern in Enid Gilchrist’s ‘Toddler Clothes’ book. It’s a simple enough pattern to draft, although I hadn’t figured on my Miss 2 having wider wrists than the finished nightgown. Improvising, I undid the french seams on the sleeves to make more room for her wrists. The fit and length are great. It’s a typical 50’s styled child’s nightgown with a simple round yoke and a lovely ‘vintage’ styled ribbon at the neck. I used wincyette fabric remanants, ricrac and some leftover pink satin ribbon which makes for a lot of different pinks thrown together. I’m now working on a dressing gown and some play clothes for Miss 2, based on Enid’s patterns, and hope to post pics very soon. You can follow my progress at
