Glow in the dark twinning pjs

Our girls love pjs and of course nightgowns are the best. I have already sewed several nightgowns, this one with long sleeves and a ruffle at the bottom, this sleeveless one and another long sleeved one. This time I used a free pattern the Grow with me Pajamas by Ellie and Mac Sewing Patterns*.

I thought glow in the dark fabric would be perfect for nightgowns for our girls. The Grow with me pajamas is a very versatile pattern as you can sew for your boys and girls from this pattern and it is for free! It includes pants, a nightgown and several optional features. This pattern only includes long sleeves, but I cut off part of the sleeves to create short sleeves. I used different colours for the colour block because I knew it would be difficult to recognize each size of pjs after laundry. Still I am struggling to remember which colour belongs to who again.


The girls love their nightgowns. I did lessen the flaring out of the nightgowns because I wanted to get the two nightgowns out of 1 meter of fabric.
