Vintage Nightgowns

Monday, December 12, 2011




Curled up with my new Nook Tablet
I was thrifting with Amanda on Wednesday night when I found this awful, frilly gown. So many frills. But I couldn't resist. Its so warm and comfy. Of course, when I showed it to Pj, he shuddered so I call it "The Man Repellant". Mine has an over-sized, quilted, embroidered yoke, zip up the front, frilly cuffs and general sack-like appearance.  Its ugly but snuggly. I love it!

I really want to make a few 40's nightgowns.  I really love girly prints, ruffles, frills and shirring. I've been some pretty floral print flannel and cozy, flannel-backed satin that would be perfect for these!

 If you want something a little sexier, you really can't go wrong with these PDF patterns from La Prairie Lady on etsy

  4. These patterns are so cute my husband might not hate them ;) I have a soft spot for "granny nighties". The Man always says I look like the wolf in grandmas clothing from Little Red Riding Hood.

  9. Guys just don't understand comfort.... and it does not look ugly IMO. It looks cute as a button. But on another note, congrats on the Nook Tablet! I'm a Nook lover myself. (I've got the 1st Edition Nook) They are wonderful, wonderful devices.
