One thing we've learned from my soon to be 4 year old niece is that you can never be too purple, glittery, frilly or princessy.  Apparently, it's very difficult to find nightgowns that are fancy enough for our little princess, so for the second year, I've made her one for her Christmas present. 

And here it is:

And a close up of the fabric and the 3 (THREE!) rows of ruffles at the bottom.  I bought 5 yards of the trim and was bound and determined to use as much as I could-- I think I have about 10 inches left.  Just enough to do a doll nightie with.

The fabric is that obnoxious kind with glitter attached to it, so my clothes will come out of the washer and dryer with glitter specks for weeks now!  It's the bonus! Roll Eyes  And seriously, all of the princess look a little bit creepy, if you ask me.  Belle has a strangely come hither look there, doesn't she?

I may have to go to the store and find a big, sparkly rhinestone button to put at the neck, just to make it that much fancier, because you can never be too fancy for a four year old who when asked her favorite princess replies "Me!"

Anyhow, thanks for looking.  It's not worth voting for when there are so many lovely projects out there, but I wanted to show it off a minute anyhow.

Cool!  I made the Best of 2009 twice!   Check 'em out!

Awesome! She is going to love it! Glitter has a way of ending up everywhere! My husband told me he went to work the other day with glitter in his coffee...just a warning to be looking out for it in strange places!

You did a beautiful job! What pattern did you use...or did you make it up? I know you're that creative...so that's why I asked! LoL! Wink

Yeah, I think I'll rock the nightie!  Grin

Don't say that! This is *wonderful* and the bottom is simply beautiful! Plus, you are one *brave* crafter to work with glitter!  Cheesy
