I made her some apple pants. She has the wisdom of a woman 70 years older than her actual age and while thanking me for making them she ended by saying, "Mom, isn't it funny when real clothes actually look like pajama's?" I made some for her new Christmas doll, that seemed to take some of the PJ effect out.
I have been getting my money's worth out of this pattern (Simplicity 4384), as I used it to make her outfit for the school's holiday party.
The skirt is twirly, even when it's made from corduroy, which makes six year old girls very happy. Though she doesn't look too happy in this picture. I bribed her with licorice. I ate some, too, because it's okay for Moms to eat candy in the morning. They write the rules.
