KCWC: Nightgown for Carolin

When I saw this fabric at Hamels a couple of months ago, I just had to get some.  I'm not usually drawn to character prints, but this one was calling my name (and it was in the sale section.)  I read these books all the time as a kid.  And Carolin reads our Bernstein Bear books all the time too.

I was going to make a regular pair of pyjamas but she requested a night gown (a long one) so that's what I did.  I used a McCalls pattern but I changed it quite a bit so I could get it cut out of the 1.25 metres I had bought.  It's not quite as flowy (is that a word? it looks funny.)

She is thrilled with it and wants it to be regular clothes so she can wear it in the day time. :-)

This particular illustration speaks to me.  It could totally be my Zachary and Carolin!

And here's my Bernstein Bears today.  So exciting!


  1. I'm the same way about most character prints but who can resist the Berenstein Bears?:)

  2. She loves it! Look at that smile:)
    Your comment about the Z&C illustration made me crack up. But, then again, you are a funny one:D

  3. Oh, this is so cute. And your comment about your brother/sister picture is funny!
