New Nightie

I used the 1893 chemise pattern from The Ladies Treasury of Costume and Fashion.
Though it looked daunting, it was quite easy to draw the pattern. There were no instructions, so I decided to line the yoke and not gather on the sleeves nor use the sleeve band.
It's quite a loud plaid, but oh, such a soft cotton! Great for sleeping. I made this to take to India.
I also had some fun with my fancy stitches on my (fairly) new Viking machine!
