My current dressing gown would hardly fit into the category ‘Nighty night (sleepwear/lingerie): being made out of scraps from my ma’s various flannel projects it really isn’t even in the same universe as lingerie and I generally wear it on lazy winter days when I have no intention of getting dressed. It is eccentric to say the very least and I love it. But as soon as I saw the announcement for this month’s challenge I knew what I wanted: a new dressing gown. I didn’t want to replace the one my ma made me, but another one to compliment it. After much searching I settled on the Buchanan from gather sewing patterns – perfect for a silky little number right? Plus its got pockets!
I made myself version 2 with the insert pockets out of some lovely silk and I am sooo pleased with the results. It was slow going but the pattern is just brilliant with such detailed instructions.
