I have permanent press fabric I bought to make shirts for my husband but then found better fabric so with yardage sitting on the shelf and hot weather nightgowns and bed jackets on the mind I paired some cornflower blue cotton with a 1946 Advance pattern
I call it my Sister-Wife creation.
Believe me, it was worse before I adding shaping to the bed jacket. And now I remember why I don’t like permanent press: it doesn’t press well, has zero drape and it stains quite easily.
I don’t believe many more words are necessary:
I elongated the top stitched darts at the shoulder by 1.25″ and 1.5″, nipped the side seams at the waist, and added released darts below the bust. That actually helped remove some of the boxy, cover up and look sexless aspects of the shape.
And for those that don’t let the prudishness of my new Sister-Wife lounging ensemble keep them far away, I’ve got a surprise:
PS: my honey needs to get new glasses.
