Vintage Nightgown

This is the nightgown I made to go with my housecoat. It is the same pattern my sister used for hers and she very kindly allowed me to use it as well. Thanks, sis! 🙂

I made it in 100% cotton I bought on clearance at Jo-Ann’s and cut it on the bias. It was a fairly easy pattern to make but I did have a little trouble with the gathers around the neckline but thanks to my sister, T.W, I got them figured out. They still aren’t perfect but hey, it’s only a nightgown! 🙂 I also added small cap sleeves but I haven’t decided if I like them or not. I may end up taking them off. Again, my sister is modeling so I could take pictures and it isn’t as short on me by far since there is a four inch difference in height between us. I should’ve taken pictures of the housecoat and nightgown together but the wind kept coming up and making it difficult to get good shots. Oh, well!

  1. Well, they were the only shoe that was neutral enough and vintage in style – it was that or silver heels!I fear I’m fresh out of slippers. Next time tell Little Green Eyes to make slippers too. 🙂

  2. That’s too pretty to be a nightgown! I mean, it should be a formal dress or something! What I mean to say is…you did an awesome job. 😀
