Torn project: girl's nightgown

I was feeling the need of a quick, easy-to-finish project, so I had my daughter pick out a length of cotton flannelette for a quick nightgown.
Except for the neckline, this was entirely a torn project, with almost no waste.  Yoke, body, sleeves, and cuffs used up 1.5m of fabric, three buttons from my stash, and a short length of bias tape to finish the neckline.

Since I wanted to make sure that there was room to grow, I didn't do much in the way of tailoring, except to make sure that she wouldn't step in the hem.

The end result was a cute, old-fashioned warm nightie.  Now her elder sister wants one, too.
