Olivia’s Regency Nightgowns

By Jennie Chancey

Olivia needed some new nightgowns. The only nightgowns I have made for Olivia since she was a toddler has been using the Girls’ Regency Dress Pattern. Now at 8 years old, she needs some new ones. In the past we have used cotton flannel. This time, Olivia chose some lovely cotton knit fabrics for her nightgowns. I have made changes to the pattern, but I am always happy to pull out my tried and true friend (pattern) and get wonderful results every time. Information on the changes I made to each gown can be found on by blog at these two posts. http://stitchedbyhislove.blogspot.com/2010/10/on-sewing-machine.html and http://stitchedbyhislove.blogspot.com/2010/10/off-sewing-machine.html . Here is the first one I made for her.

Olivia is one happy, growing little lady. Thanks, Jennie, for the great pattern.

It has been so much fun to watch Miss Olivia grow up from toddlerhood with her mama making adorable outfits from my patterns. Thanks so much for sharing these, Carol! She is precious!

Share the love!

    How lovely! :) I hadn’t thought to use the pattern to make nightgowns. What a great thought!

    Beautiful nightgowns, for a beautiful little girl! What a great idea! I have read that this is a good pattern to start with, so I think I will try my hand at matching mother daughter nightgowns! Thank you for sharing your daughter and your great ideas! Blessings and Peace, Tina
