Keep Cool during the Dog Days of Summer by Sewing Winter Holiday Wear

Turn up the AC and sew sew sew for beautiful Winter Holiday celebration wear.....

For gorgeous Christmas Morning photos create some special nightgowns, pajamas, and caps.

Don't just imagine Papa in a nightshirt, robe, and cap - make 'em now

Picture this 1950s Simplicity Pattern in red, gray or blue stripe cotton or flannel


Top it with this 1950s classic manly robe in a soft corduroy or wool flannel

Nightcap patterns seem more difficult to find
Here is a nightcap I drafted my own self -- if there is interest comment below and I'll draw it out on a grid so you can make one too.
Cotton Sleep Cap long view
and a fancier appliqued version
Steampunk Night Cap

Another style The Carew Pole Nightcap described at Extreme Costuming (site is under copyright so am unable to share the pictures, but well worth a look - for embroidered cap and rough pattern.)

Nightgowns and Robes for mama coming soon..... stay tuned.
