A ballerina nightgown

Lily has lots of recon'd pj's but most of them are shirt and pants. Since she's a sweater like her brother (just not quite AS bad), we knew she'd need a few gowns to wear during the summer.
So I hit Sewzannes for some cute knits and some matching FOE and this was the first nighty i made her.
I drafted the pattern myself using the approximate sizes of a simple dress she has.

Oh, thank you so much for your posts! I really love reading your tutorials and seeing the transformations in progress (I am a visual learner). The ballerina gown is simply gorgeous. My daughter is probably about the same size as your Lily so your pics are really helpful!

I am a fellow sewing mama. I love this! It turned out cute. You are the queen of recon!
