....or Nightie Night!
Me pretty new nightie.
One of my newest finds! I’m sure it will prove to be a well loved and worn night gown.
With an endearing pattern of blue birds and sweet blossoms (can’t wait till spring!), how could one not fall in love with it? (I’m not that with-it when it comes to birds, so please correct me if I’m wrong…. all I know is that they are birds and they are blue in colour, hence the blue birds!)
Close up of the print.
Its home made from a rather diaphanous, but crunchy, nylon type fabric (?)
‘And honestly’ * said with great disgust!* and please remember I was born in a full petticoat, but who on ever thought that a see through night gown was a good idea?... erm... well any way, lets just say I had to wear a slip underneath to keep my modesty!!! Tut-tut, but I just had to show it off, it’s too nice to be not shown…
It also features rows of shearing around the waist, and a self fabric frill around the hem and yoke- I’m secretly squealing about the frills, I seem to have found a fondness towards anything with frills and lace at the moment (oh, eck what’s happening?)….
Date wise I would say late 40’s at the earliest, but I’m veering more towards the 50’s with this one- what do you gals think? Well whatever era it’s from, I just loves it!
