I created a prototype night gown using PMB5. I used the standard blouse with no sleeves and a scoop neck, rotated the dart to the neckline and added an inch and a half in the center front and back. I narrowed the shoulders to more of a tank top type shoulder.

Night attire is my pet peeve. It is winter here - have you even seen a pair of winter pjs that are both warm and yet still comfortable and attractive?

In the shops there are plenty of tshirts and flannellette pull on pants. The tshirt fabric is too thin for warmth and the pants have no give at all. All usually in one of three colours - grubby pink, pallid purple or faded blue. If you are lucky, the tshirt will be plain but usually it will be printed with some juvenile message or cartoon character. I'm nearer 50 than 5 so I don't really want to wear "Princess Sleepy".

I haven't had much chance for fabric shopping but even there the suitable fabrics are in babycolours and prints

I agree. Night attire is an issue. I am about to go into hospital for a few days. My night attire will be on view to quite a few people. I managed it, but it was a long search to find something that was decent. I am still looking for something to use as a 'bed jacket'. It is winter, but I don't know how warm the ward or I will be. So I need layers. Some of the messages printed on tops I wouldn't wear even if no-one could see me, let alone in hospital. Some of the others would be 'barely acceptable' if I was about 90.

I finished four nightgowns for this summer. It's not particularly exciting sewing, but it has been ridiculously hot here, so it was just in time.

They're very nice. What fabrics did you use? I would like to make just what you have with silk. Sometimes the fabric store here has a sale and it's nice to get some. And it wouldn't matter if it is see through! I made a "sleeping sheet " (a folded and sewn up version of a sleeping bag) which I use inside my sleeping bag (which isn't mine) and it feels so luxurious. It is like cotton broadcloth - plain even weave. Silk noil?
Enjoy! Rather - sleep well!

Actually these are made from cotton jersey, but there is enough ease to use a woven.

Yes, jersey would be comfortable.
