Selestat, France






I wanted to make this night slip for my sister as a present in silk, but I wanted to try out the pattern first on some scrap fabric. It was easier than I thought. Its pretty much the hardest thing I’ve ever attempted. The elastic at the back I could have done a little better.

Material Notes

Vintage 60’s pink fabric I found hanging on a discrete hanger in the back of an unheated, cluttered room at the “Original Original Treasure Market” in Kokomo.





Katie for letting me use her sewing machine (fingers crossed I get one for Christmas!)

Theresa for jumping up from behind her laptop when I asked if she would pose for a picture in this pepto-nighty and had it on lickety split and posing like the model she is.

    barbara.agatha…..I felt the SAME EXACT TREPIDATION AS YOU! And I’m telling you, that’s why I bought this pink fabric that cost a $1.00 as a trial, and then I was going to make it in silk. But, check it out: Have I made it in silk? No! I think you should just go for it! The instructions are really very good and if you just take your time, you should be fine! Good luck!

    As a novice, did you find this very hard? Think I could tackle it? I’m afraid to buy silk and waste it by making some silly mistake along the way…
