when I'm wearing this gown. I certainly can't get near a stove wearing it. Hell, I can hardly walk in it. I need to lie down. Somebody should bring me a drink and a box of bonbons.
This lovely and impractical garment is the Decades of Style 1926 Negligee (#2601)
Its one of those projects that takes longer to cut out than to sew. I'm not quite five feet, so I did shorten it quite a bit. It's supposed to have ties on the back (that's that horizontal line on the back), but they end up in a very awkward place, so I took them off. I finished all the edges with a narrow rolled hem on my serger. This was so easy to make I feel lazy wearing it!
