Pillowcase Nightie

A while back, Pretty Prudent (Prudent Baby) shared this tutorial and I had pinned it, waiting to be able to use it. Well, my lil' M.E. is now the right size for me to actually take all of the vintage pillowcases I bought and make nighties for her. Which turned out so well! And since we are getting some hot nights, these nighties aren't so restrictive when she sleeps.

I packed one of the nighties for our trip to Washington, thinking we would have some hot nights. Nope, I was wrong. Dead cold! We quickly took photos on the front porch of my Mom's little red farm house. Yes, there is a bed on the front porch. That's where my Grandma insisted on sleeping. She actually made the rope bed herself. I love that woman, and miss her so much.

Here, M.E. is modeling the nightie for you. Such a ham.

The back has a slit at the top for easy dressing and undressing
The neckline is adorned with gingham bias tape
