Looks nice (can we see it on?). I think Vogue are often too narrow in their fitting, and I can't imagine why they would design a nightdress without enough ease - if there is ever a garment you need space to move in, it's a nightdress. But you can see in the pattern drawing that they haven't. I have made the camisole (actually I think it is what they call the "top") in this pattern, and had the same trouble with the 'V' that you had. I don't like their use of the lace only to make an edging - although it is common enough in RTW I know - but I use a bias binding, and it is awkward in the 'V'. But I have made several, in silk and cotton, with and without lace, and find it a useful pattern. Lovely colour in that silk by the way - what is it called? And I thought your "bridal lace" was a luscious touch!

It looks beautiful to me! Are you going to enter it in the Lingerie contest? I might get this pattern and make it in silk charmeuse, which is lightweight for summer. Kwik Sew has a Lingerie book with lots of tips for working with lace and handling edges, in case you are interested. Now to get that pattern!

Very pretty nightgown. Thanks for mentioning the need for side slits.

Thanks for the tips about size - I may cut the hips larger or go for the larger size from the start. My only other Vogue pattern 9887 - dress - does not fit well - big at the top and too tight further down. That also, now I look carefully, shows a picture of a woman with a pencil straight body!! Will also bear in mind the comments about overcasting as I do not have an overlocker either and don't want to waste the silk.
