That is a lovely nightgown. Huge kudo's to you for being able to sew that up without the instructions! Beautiful job. :)

You even used a similar colour to the pattern envelope! Very pretty nightgown, must feel like a princess in it!

What a gorgeous nightie! I love that you made it in the exact color of the envelope design! This is definitely a pattern I'm going to start cruising the vintage pattern sites for! Thanks for the great review!

I think I'd like it for daytime wear, for hanging around the house, seeing that I'm a retired senior citizen and spend loads of time at home, at either my computer, TV or sewing machine. I'd get plenty of use out of a garment like this one.

This is beautiful - just like my Aunt had in her wedding trousseau in the early '50s. So glad to see a review from you - it has been a while.

Gorgeous! Simply gorgeous! It's wonderful how you've sewn this without instructions too.

Now *that's* recycling! You took a pattern most people would have thrown away and made something beautiful from it. Neat!

Missed you drsue! This is just gorgeous. It needs to be a day dress. Lovely design.

Hello again, Dr. Sue! How nice to see you again, and what a pretty nightie you have created for us to admire. These elegant vintage gowns really do have it all over a giant t-shirt worn to bed, don't they?

I was just wondering about you a couple of days ago. Glad to see you're still lurking about. Very pretty nightie!

Beautiful, this was a great era for lingerie, I can see whay you like this style, its feminine and dainty but not too frilly.

A very pretty nightgown - definitely has timeless appeal and would make a great daywear also.

So good to see a review from you, Sue! This is just lovely and the style lines are beautiful. I can imagine that this is pretty flattering to the female form.

This is so lovely -- wow.

I think you did a great job, working without the instructions can make you puzzle a lot. But you didn't as far as I've noticed. I love it!

Gorgeous! This is one that should be reissued. I wonder if the 30" bust is actually an under (or over) bust measurement?

This is so pretty! It's wonderful to see a beautiful nightgown like this made. You did a fabulous job!

Romantic and timeless. I love the V-design on the back and the gathered neckline.

Welcome Back!!! Love this nightgown. Lovely design.

That is just precious! What a stunning design and implementation. I think it has potential as an evening gown with different fabric (obviously) and some other tweaking.

Ahh, thanks Carolyn! I changed which was gong to be the main pic, I think that messed things up. Looks like I fixed it now.

This is almost too pretty to sleep in! It's good to see you back and I'm glad to see that you're still sewing. For some reason, your review isn't showing up in the review gallery.
