The Ruffled Nightgown pattern was inspired by Don Daily’s whimsical illustrations in The Nutcracker, a childhood holiday classic by E.T.A. Hoffman. The long gown has options for a shirred yoke and long or three-quarter length sleeves. The bodice is lined. Puffy sleeves and ruffles on the yoke give the gown a Victorian look. This design works well in lightweight cottons, cotton blends, as well as lightweight flannel. The ruffles can also be made from flat eyelet lace.
Don't miss the My Angie Girl Ruffled Nightgown for 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers, also available on Pixie Faire.

I Used Flannel for my nightgown. easy to follow instructions with options for the yoke. A girl can never have too many Nightgowns.
I made this gown out of a very light weight white embroidered cotton. It looks like an old family heirloom! I chose the long sleeves, ruffles and clever faux smocking - and I love every single one of those details. It is always a plus that the designer offers several different variations, something that I value when buying a pattern. Fit is perfect and instructions are easy to follow.
