I made this one for a friend's daughter for Christmas. She has outgrown the first one I made and wanted another. This is my "go to" pattern for nightgowns. It's super easy to make and super quick. It has a variety of styles including a robe pattern. I like using lace for the sleeves. I just think it adds a little something extra.
I used Ellen McCarns Allison Leight smocking plate.
I wanted a little more color on the back, so I chose to weave floss through the top two cable rows. I'm not sure I like it though. I may take that out before I wrap this up.
You can see other versions of the dress here and here.
