Kids Clothes Week Day 2 -- gingham knit nightgown

KCW Day 2 arrived amid "a wintery mix" coming down all day.  It's dreary and bitter cold outside…perfect for staying in and sewing!

I've had this gingham interlock knit since I was in college. I never got around to the project I bought it for.  It's nice to finally put it to use and get it out of my stash!  I took the tank top pattern in Ottobre 1/2013 (#2) and lengthened it to about 28" from the shoulder.  Next time, I'll draft the A-line from just under the armpit instead of halfway down the body since it's not quite as loose as I'd like.  On the other hand, as an actual tank, I think this pattern has a very nice fit!

Miss M loves her new nighty!  I love how simple it was to put together.

Tomorrow's project…a mesh tank top for Little Guy!
