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.

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!

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!
