Next up (today hopefully) are a pair of retro cropped PJ's for my one and only grandgirl, Ashleigh (15). Can't send gifts to the boys without putting something in for my sweetheart. I found this multicolored print (pink background of course) at Hancock's yesterday. It has all kinds of girlie stuff printed in the fabric cause she's such a girlie girl. I'm sure she will love them.

I plan to trim the bottom leg areas with blue grossgrain ribbon.
