Eclipse Nightgown Pattern

A couple years ago, I was browsing through a clothing site looking through pajamas and nightgowns for Christmas.  I found the cutest nightgown and bloomer set that I really wanted to get for my daughter.  So I did.

    Yes, even I, who enjoys sewing, will purchasing clothing.  But this nightgown and bloomer set wouldn't last long.  Especially at the rapid rate this girl grows.  

    I knew I wanted to make her more and with a nightgown that had more length instead of the tunic length.  And without all the frills and lace.  She just wanted comfy and basic.
