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 32-page 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!

There is also a BONUS CAP pattern included!

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.

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. :)
