Preethi from WIDI shares a free pattern for making her Aanchi nightgown for a toddler girl. It loose fitting dress gathered on to a wide round yoke. It doesn’t have to just be a nightgown, though. This style is also makes pretty dresses. Her free pattern makes a size 2T. If you need another size, you could probably adjust it up or down using a shirt that fits your child to gauge the size. Go to WIDI for the pattern and tutorial.
