Made from Butterick 4137, with a lot of adjustments to fit (the pattern was quite big). I used a fantastic doona which had a border print of gigantic flowers on one side and smaller flowers on the other, which is used as contrast for the tie and collar. As the doona was quite rough, I lined the gown with some cotton batiste I had floating around. The lining is bagged and fully enclosed. Although you can’t see, there are ties on the inside to stop the gown from flapping open and scandalising the general public!
