I love my husband dearly but he is not the most romantic man around. An example-for Christmas he gave me a wireless printer router. Now don’t get me wrong, I love being totally wireless, but a little romance now and then would be nice.
So with Valentine’s Day coming soon. . . and not much hope of a romantic gift, I thought I would make myself a gift. I found this pattern, and I just love the sleeveless gown in the center.
The tucks in the front and the lace make this such a sweet nightie.
I started with parchment color batiste. It is soft, yet holds its shape and no ironing needed.
Then I found this eyelet lace to go with it. This lace is not as wide as the lace in the photo but I think it will be more comfortable.
I added an applique to the neckline to dress it up a bit.
This is not a difficult pattern so it did not take long to complete my project. I took it outside for photos for the best lighting.
It is actually a little big for me but should be comfy for sleeping. Now regardless of what Valentine’s Day brings-I know I will have at least one romantic gift.
