Hey again! I thought I’d share my latest vintage projects–sleepwear from the 60s!

Here’s the pattern– Simplicity 5080

And here are the results– Evie's girly jammies and Evie's nighgown 1 I need to show a detail of the nightgown, ’cause I’ve been experimenting with pintucks– nightgown bodice closeup

They're gorgeous, I'm in love the pink stripe fabric. I gotta make my little girl some of these now!

The striped fabric is from Hobby Lobby, and they have it in more than pink, too. I got it on one of their 30% off cotton sales. And I believe the pattern is around in several sizes. This is a child 2 and the only difference between 'child' patterns and 'toddler' patterns is about an inch in length.

I *did* use a different pattern for the pants because there wasn't a diaper allowance, (Simplicity 3584. It's modern.) but the pattern pieces were pretty much the same.
