That's Sew Cinematic

I spotted this on Debi Fry's blog at Fashions From the Past :



I posted with Rhinestones and Telephones that I wish to take on a project I thought about 10 years ago for a nightgown not unlike what Irene Dunn wore at the end of 'My Favorite Wife'.

It has been a while and I am afraid I did not remember the puff sleeves and that the opening is above the bust line, not below:


Another observation is the slashed opening in the back.



Here is the pattern I found to be very similar (style at upper left, with the opening):



Don't imagine I will commence the project before the end of this month due to heavy deadlines, but I will post my progress to keep you all up to date.

In the meantime, I encourage you all to take a look at this sew-along challenge and participate!

P.S. Here is Cary dressed as Santa, it was too cute not to share here!

I'm looking forward to seeing your nightgown! My most recent EvaDress pattern purchases were bought for this sew along, so I am very excited to see that you will be participating!

Well Meg, I look forward to seeing your project, as well.

Cheers!

Every lady deserves elegant at home attire and this pattern will suit nicely. What color are you planning on?

You know Lynne, a little piece of me has started processing what color. I have to refresh by watching that sequence in moments here and I also have some silk swatches to get through in good natural day light. So, I will get back to you on that
