Old Fashioned Nightgown 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

18 reviews   |  

The Flossie Potter Old Fashioned Nightgown  is a wardrobe classic that will keep your doll toasty warm on those chilly nights, whether she's at a slumber party or curling up with a good book.

With this PDF sewing pattern, you can design the way you want your nightgown to look:  with short sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, or long sleeves; with or without a contrast cuff; floor length or calf length; with or without a flounce.  There are so many possible combinations!

The Old Fashioned Nightgown was designed to fit 18" wide-bodied dolls, but with minor adjustments in sleeve length or sleeve width, it can fit slimmer 18" dolls as well.

There is also a BONUS CAP pattern included!  Look for the pattern piece envelope at the end of the pattern which you can make to organize your pattern pieces in the Flossie Potter collection.

Thumbs up for this pattern!

This is a very versatile pattern. I love all the options. I've made several including using the short sleeve and shorter length, long sleeve, ruffle included, ruffle not included. They all looked great! The pattern was easy to follow. A zipper closure was easier for me and my grandchildren are pretty young so it's easier for them to do by themselves. I used pre gathered ruffles for the yoke ruffle and some rick rack on the lower portion of the gown. This fabric is from a repurposed jersey knit long sleeved shirt purchased from the local goodwill store for $2. I lined up the sleeves with the hem of the purchased top. The elastic slipped through the hem using the tool in the pics below. I think some nighty slippers would look fantastic and bring lots of smiles to my grand children's faces.

Great pattern!

The directions are concise and easy to follow.. The completed nightgown is lovely - because I hate to gather, I used pre'athered lace in place of the self ruffle!

Old Fashioned Nightgown 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

Darling pattern and easy to follow as all of Flossie Potter patterns are. I was trying to recreate a nightgown from an old picture and this was the perfect jumping off pattern. Because the voile I was using was so sheer, I added a lining which was not in the pattern but it was a simple addition. I also added the Peter Pan collar.

The girls are ready for spring in their new nightgowns.

Great pattern and easy to make. I used these super cute gingham checked fabrics and lace and they turned out awesome! Love the pattern and highly recommend it. :)
