These are for my 2 honorary nieces Emma and Sophie. They both have their birthdays around now. Emma is 9 and Sophie is 3. Back when Emma was maybe 2 I made her a plain, flannel nightgown and it turned into her favorite. Sophie now wears it. So it was time to make new ones. My main mistake was to make them match, because when Emma outgrows hers and passes it down to Sophie, Sophie will already have had one just like it. That's no fun. At least it wouldn't be for me.

I did use a tiny bit of yarn for the button loop. Voila! ~ Knitting related info: Oops, it was crocheting. Close enough.
Pattern: None--Yarn was too thick to make the classic button loop
Yarn: Elann Esprit, 91m/ 100 yds (relaxed) - 186 yds (stretched), 97% cotton, 3% elastane, blue
Needle: an embroidery sharp--has anybody seen my betweens?
