I love flannel and would like to make a new nightgown for next winter. Any suggestions? I know it's May but I'm going on a sewing retreat in October and want to make a new nightgown while on the retreat. Thanks!

Here is a gown I have been wanting to make:
Butterick nightgown

Is the sewing retreat commercial? I am also in OR and would love an opportunity to sew with others. I am on the east side.

The retreat is organized by ASG (American Sewing Guild), are you a member? If not please consider joining, we have a wonderful time. The retreat is full but there's a waiting list but you have to be an ASG member. Would you like me to send you the contact person's info? Thanks for replying about my nightgown request

Just remember to pre-wash as some flannels do shrink.

Mary, The pattern I have chosen for my flannel nightgown is Kwik Sew 3747. There are a couple variations, the one I will use is like the old style Lanz gowns if you remember them. They always had such cute prints. I will bring the pattern to class tomorrow so you can look at it.

thanks for the reminder Patti. I recently made a flannel night shirt for my husband, and wow that fabric really did shrink a lot. Good thing I did prewash it.

Do try to find double face flannel. It costs more but the inside is then as cosy as the outside is!
