A little sewing while we wait...

Lord willing, our ultrasound to find out what we are having is happening this Friday. Can't wait. Until then, here's a little project to share. My sweet friend sent me this pattern and I absolutely love it. Evangeline recently decided she wants to sleep in nightgowns, and all the ones in store seem yucky. So I let her pick out fabric from Hobby Lobby and she just loves the finished product! (She's a little pink cheeked from a day of swimming at the pool) The fabric is brightly colored butterflies and I added a big ruffle to the bottom. I ended up moving the pattern pieces to make it a bit bigger as the last one I made her was a size 2 and was a little tight. I guess the pattern runs small? Here she is all clean and ready for bed!

And a sweet bonus picture. The chair she's sitting in was made by hubby's grandfather when he was young. He was a miner in Colorado and made it out of the boxes the dynamite was shipped in. It's very sturdy and Evie thinks its perfect!
