What was your inspiration?
this is a 30+ year tradition that i sew up a Christmas Eve nightgown or pjs for each of the girls, all 4 grand daughters and yes, my daughters STILL want them- when i first started this, my girls were about 8 and 4 , now they are 36 and 40!
What are you most proud of?
that each year i managed to find coordinating flannel or holiday knit- it takes alot to do that many, so its mostly mix & match! this year is Chrsitmas dogs, in honor of Ava, who dearly loves our black lab, Jazzie, they are almost inseparable, going to be hard on both when Ava goes off to all day kindergarden!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
keep all your scrap fabric, mixing and matching it easy to miss a facing or bodice or cuff- i usually have to cut something out in the process!!!
