I had a lot of fun making these pony nightgowns! I used flannel fabric from Joanns. Joanns has a HUGE selection of flannel prints, and they are all so adorable! Better yet, they are relatively cheap! I got my flannel for $3/yard, but come Black Friday, the flannel is even cheaper! I just barely squeaked by with one yard of fabric for a size 6; I think a yard and a quarter would be just perfect for that size. I used the curved bodice from Violette Field Threads's Clara pattern, flutter sleeves, and I cut some curves in the bottom of the skirt. I had enough fabric left over to make a dolly dress, too! And fyi, at Joanns, a lot of the flannel and fleece prints match! I picked out the pink pony fabric to match the fleece blanket my daughter already owned.
I think a matching nightgown, blanket, and dolly nightgown would make a perfect Christmas or birthday present! I'm hoping to make more of these nightgowns--cold weather friendly with long sleeves. My daughter loves these nightgowns! And I love making them, and not spending more than $5!
