Strawberry Shortcake Nightgowns

This strawberry shortcake fabric was given to me when Maddie was a baby. I've wanted to make something out of it but just wasn't sure what. Last summer we were going to try to have one of my neices who is the same age of Maddie come stay with us for a few days. I thought it would be fun to make them matching nightgowns. The summer got busy and it just never worked out to get the girls together. So yesterday I saw the fabric and pulled it out. I had forgotten I had even cut the fabric and had it pinned together ready to sew. Being the fabric was cut almost a year ago I had to add a longer ruffle to Maddies so it will fit her for more then just a few weeks. I shortened the other cut fabric hoping it would fit Emily.

I think they turned out pretty well. The girls are very happy with their new springy nightgowns. Maddie has 2 other nightgowns and Emily is always trying to wear them. After about 30min of tripping over it she usually ends up changing into p.j's of her own. She is so excited to have her very own nightgown.
