Samantha's new nightgown

Nightgown sewn by Mama Squirrel.  Fabric, vintage cotton sheet plus yard-saled trims (including the crocheted flower). Pattern from Sew the Essential Wardrobe for 18-inch Dolls, by Joan Hinds and Jean Becker.  Photo by Dollygirl.

(The pattern said to put elastic around the wrist end of the sleeves, but I left it off, wanting to leave them loose.  I am going to finish them off with some overcast stitches, maybe in lavender to match the flower.)
