I always loved Samantha's nightgown. I was not able to buy it until I reached adulthood, but even now, it's very soothing to me to put it on her.
This is not the official American Girl Samantha's nightgown.
This is actually a version of Samantha's nightgown that I made myself.
I used the official Pleasant Company pattern.
The lace is different- I just used what I had in the house.
The ends of the sleeves are different too. I put in a sleeve band instead of using elastic.
However, I am really proud of this. I think it looks like Samantha's nightgown at first glance, even in person. You don't notice the differences unless you are looking for them.
This is going to be a gift for my little cousin, and I hope it makes her happy.
