Very pretty and feminine, Dr. Sue. Often, it seems that earlier nightie patterns are kind of utilitarian and boxy, but this one is a charmer.

Practice making buttonholes! LOL! Anyway, it turned out very pretty -- hope it's comfy, too.

So pretty! I'm a big fan of cotton lawn and I'm sure your gown is very comfy, too!

Lovely - I usually don't see much that I like in Butterick but this is a *really* great style; I have to add this to my wish list. Good point on the buttonholes - I would have done it that way as well.

This is a definite WOW pattern - what I first said when I saw the picture - and very pretty. I'd love to make something like this just to have it in my sewing room!

Just beautiful! Love your choice of ribbon color. Complements your fabric.

Your nightie is beautiful, Sue. Making button holes is up at the top of my list of things I don't like to do, so I admire you wanting to make this nightie again.

When the picture opened up my first thought was similar to so many others, "So pretty." You did a wonderful job.

Lovely! Could grace a boutique window. And thanks for mentioning Farmhouse Fabrics, a new source to me(uh oh!)

What a lovely gown!! Thanks for the details about how you did the buttonholes. I have never used cotton lawn, it looks wonderful! Great review!

Wow! What an enchanting gown.I long to sew heirloom garments, just don't hv the time. You've inspired me to give it a try.

This is lovely, drsue. Very clever technique for marking the buttonholes too. I've seen the cotton lawns on the Farmhouse website, but I've never ordered any. Glad to hear that they are so nice.

This is very pretty, and as you say a great exercise in buttonholes!

Okay, what's the verdict on sleeping comfort? Are you sure you *want* to sleep in it? It's much too pretty to mess up. I think I'd just leave it on the dressform and admire it. Lovely!

It is very, very comfortable!

Beautiful garment, as usual. I have this pattern and haven't sewn it. I wondered how it would sew up and if it would be comfortable You've answered all my questions, so I'll be sewing it soon. Thanks for the detailed instructions on the buttonholes.

Thank you very much for the review. I have had this pattern for quite some time but have not made it yet. Your review will be very helpful when I finally do make it. The nightgown looks lovely.
