Edited: I’ve just sent a link to this post to sewing pattern companies so if you’d like to impress them with the need you could add a comment below
Nightgowns have been on my mind for the past number of years so I pursue each pattern company’s new releases for the perfect pattern and periodically search ebay as well as a few vintage pattern shops.
the right pattern has not yet been found and very few designs are being offered. All of them are boxy granny gowns or only hint at the proper nightgown I see in my mind’s eye.
After seeing Lorna’s excellent Power Dry projects and vintage McCall’s nightgown pattern in her last post the fire grew a bit brighter. I hopped over to ebay where I finally found
The Perfect Pattern.
I thought I had found the Perfect Pattern!
But it was not to be. This Perfect Pattern sold for $41.27.
Awwww, come on!
Attention Pattern Companies: let’s see this style return to the market, pretty please? More than one buyer is just waiting, credit card in hand. This is simple, Pattern People!
The Bed Jacket
And while you’re at it, add a lovely comfy, easy to get out of, bed jacket. Perhaps it should be hip or high hip length, flared through the back, with good shoulder and neck coverage, wide sleeves with elastic at the wrists. Do us a big favor and put it all in one pattern envelope.
We Sewing Goddesses like to read about fashion and sewing and apply our hand sewing skills in bed on cool evenings, don’t we???!!! I mean, sell us some basic lifestyle needs here, not more Designer Suits, we need our beauty sleep first!
Grrr, grumble, mumble, or
I’ll we’ll have to draft our own….
Since I saw this pattern go for the price of a very lovely linger-worthy steak dinner, I know I’m not alone in this burning desire.
