This sweet little nightie set reminds me of something Doris Day would have worn in The Pajama Game (1957). Cute and comfy, this set was created in a lightweight baby pink flannel. I really would rather have used a lightweight satin, but couldn’t find one that I really loved, so the flannel was a compromise.
But, I think it turned out cute anyway! The pattern is a 1950’s Simplicity number 1102. It has a wide, gathered neckline, short, puffy sleeves and matching panties with elasticized legs. I trimmed it with white lace and satin bows. I only made one slight change to the pattern which was to eliminate the front and back seams on the gown.
So sweet, Simplicity even designed a little girls’ pattern that is exactly like it! Don’t you just love all things vintage?
