Midweek with Marion and Babbette

Hello, Dear Ones! Welcome to Midweek with Marion and little Babbette.
I decided these gals needed nightgowns. They were taking their clothes off and sleeping in their undies and that certainly couldn't be too comfortable.
Here are the girls in their green and white checked nightgowns. They are getting along so well and wanted matching gowns so my aim was to please them. I made Babbette's gown first and she just couldn't wait until Marion's gown was finished.
I sewed some eyelet around the bodice to look like a yoke and then added a tiny little white ribbon bow.
Marion is wearing her gown so you can see it's just like Babbette's.
Marion wanted a green ribbon bow and the neckline is a little larger on Marion's gown. Oh, Marion! Honey, go into the bathroom and comb your hair, get it out of your eyes. She takes her hair down at night and her hair is so thick it is hard to keep it out of her face.
Both girls popped into bed and Marion commenced to read Babbette a bedtime story. As you can see, Babbette is trying so hard to keep her little eyes open. She wants to hear the end of the story.
Aw, little Babbette is asleep now and see how Marion takes care of her? She has tucked her in and I hear her saying a little prayer and asking the Lord to help Babbette sleep through the night and protect her. I have such sweet girls.
Here's the pattern that I used for Babbette's gown. I used the pattern for the little red dress and just added length to it and it worked just fine. Now I cheated and used the same pattern for Marion's gown. Babbette is a little wider through the chest than Marion so I thought the pattern would work and it did. For Marion I just cut the neck out a little to make it bigger so it wouldn't fit so tight around her neck.

Thanks for popping in and make sure you go and visit my other dolly friends:



Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Go To Sleep You Little Baby

 go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

your momma gone away and your
daddys gone to stay
didn't leave nobody but the baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

everybody's gone in the cotton and
the corn
didn't leave nobody but the baby

you're a sweet little baby
you're a sweet little baby

She's long gone with her red shoes on
Didn't need no other loving baby

don't you weep pretty baby
don't you weep pretty baby

honey on a rock and the sugar don't
stop going to bring the bottle to the baby

don't you weep pretty baby
don't you weep pretty baby

you and me and the devil makes
three
don't need no other loving baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

come lay your bones on the
alabaster stones
and be my ever loving baby
