Baby doll delicious

Baby doll… I loved the ones Samantha sometimes wore on the show “Bewitched” watched so many times in my childhood (and gulp- adulthood)! 1960s style!

Admittedly, at first I thought it would be a little bit extravagant to use 2 metres of Liberty lawn (Isle of Wight design, FYI) for a nightgown but then decided that if I wore it a few times a week through the Summer, it was exactly the kind of garment that deserved the best fabric. Buttons were custom made by moi.

Believe it or not, the hardest part was choosing the trim- I went with the lace I chose after perusing pinterest of 1950s and 1960s baby doll nightgowns- I liked the more modern feel of the Isle of Wight Liberty lawn design with the feminine, lace frills!

Two sick kiddies beckon… but here it is… ready for many night of cocoa ! Voila! I would love to make a nightgown or bed jacket next…!

Sewing time has been very limited of late.. But I am determined to finish a baby doll nightie by this Sunday… Here is the pattern, the liberty lawn and trim…

Who doesn’t love a baby doll nightie???

Here is some more late 50s to early 70s inspiration from my collection of patterns and catalogues… Enjoy!
