Whale Appliqued Sleeping Gown

I've loved the recent trend of whale themed baby and children's fabric and clothing.  I couldn't resist making a little whale sleep gown for baby boy number two.

The applique is my own design, and the sleeping gown was created by using an existing article of clothing as a guide.  I don't know why it is, but I can never seem to get the envelope neckline to properly line up, even with the help of Dana's tutorial.

So despite the fact that this little gown has kind of a goofy neckline, I think that our little boy will be nice and comfortable while he sleeps (or stays up all night screaming).

 I know that not everyone is sold on the idea of gowns for their little guys, but I found them to be extremely nice when you have to change diapers in the middle of the night.  I love them.

So cute! I, personally, love the gowns. Once they are sleeping through the night and more mobile the gowns lose their appeal, but when they are up every 2 hours (or just never sleep!) saving that precious time and energy accessing the diaper is so important!
