Oo it's too pretty to be just a nightie. What about a camisole or something that you can waer out? :)
Very beautiful! I agree too pretty for a nightie. I love how it is draped on the dress form. How about a simple one shouldered top? Or a dress with the bottom in a silk satin black or blue?
OMG Collette...that is one fabulous piece of fabric. Far to fab to cut up - Why dont you do what I do with its sister piece - the red Prada hearts you brought back from one of your Europe buying trips. I sleep with mine under my pillow !!!!
I think a slinky nightie is fabulous, who cares if no one else sees it, who wouldnt want to slip into a 'I heart Prada' nightie on a hot summer night! Sooooo Jealous!
I think it is too wonderful not to share out and about - a draped top as Sandra suggests is a nice idea..Vicki
What about a simple cami & a pair of short boxers with a cool trim ....wear to bed or wear the cami out. It would work so well for both....Keri
Keep it simple and definately into something you can share - with more than one other person!I have adapted the pattern I made for Stella (similar to the one your girls made) to suit an older mix (bit more shape front and back). It's terribly simple but sometmes a little goes a long way - I'll put photos up tonight.
I like Noosa Girl's idea of sleeping with it under your pillow. I have fabrics from YEARS ago that I can't cut into because they are so precious!
