This is my version of Retro Butterick B5152, which is a 1948 reprint of a floor length nightgown. I decided to make version A (short sleeves) but left out the ruffles, as I felt they would take focus away from my chosen fabric. I made this using a gorgeous embroidered Chinese silk brocade which got a little annoying at times due the fraying, but it was so worth it. The pattern does ask you to put shoulder pads in which I haven’t done at the moment as i’m not sure if I want them? It also features nice & deep side seam pockets, hook & eye closures and a matching tie belt. This pattern was very easy to follow and had clear instructions/diagrams, definitely recommended!
