"Frozen" fabric

I began a tradition of buying my grandchildren pj's or nighties when they come to visit.
I looked at a few stores for a cute "frozen" nightgown and couldn't find any.
I went to Joann Fabrics and saw this beautiful fabric!
The main character is Elsa, which is my grand daughter Neo's favorite :)
The fabric was pretty expensive, $24.99/yard, but it was 60" wide and was on sale.  I thought I could make matching nightgowns for Neo and her sister Kylie.

To make a long story short, there wasn't quite enough fabric for two nightgowns.
I found these pretty little frosty pink flower buttons in my button jar.
I used pink eyelet for the neck and armhole trim.

To make another long story shorter, used lavender eyelet for the hem trim.
Originally, the pink trim was for one nightgown and the lavender was for the other.
This nightgown was made from a slip pattern and I have made about 20 or more of them for my daughters and grand daughters.

I was able to fussy cut the yoke so that Elsa is front and center :)

Here is Neo wearing her nightgown, she really loves it!
She wants to wear it during the day too, and Kylie is wearing her "Princess Sophia" nightgown that I bought for her.
Aren't they the cutest?  (proud grammy)
