FINISHED! A Liberty Atrium Nightdress

I made a few things for our trip overseas, this dress and this hoody which have both been seeing quite a bit of wear, but always after 4 weeks into being away, the clothes I take start to feel pretty tired and you long for something that isn't on high rotation. Not so, my third make which is just a simple nightdress I made using Liberty of London Atrium.  I bought this fabric from Shaukat early last year and not really knowing what the colour-ways would look like in real life I ended up buying two colour-ways (!). The other colour-way, is a real favourite which I made up into a Kanerva , but this one is just too pale for me to make up into day wear, so just days before we left I whipped up this simple nightdress.
The pattern is from a Japanese Pattern book that I've had for a while and I used the 'Lesson 1' pattern. I have made this pattern up before as a top.  It's an interesting design feature because the pintucks just 'flap about'. But I like it.

There really isn't much else to say is there. The pattern is perfect as a nightdress and it goes great with my lounging Liberty Kimono!  The total Liberty lounging (sleeping) ensemble.

  3. I love the idea of luxurious sleepwear, but I can never seem to get myself to cut lovely fabric into pajamas. It's kind of like a gift to yourself, though, just because no one outside of immediate family will see it doesn't mean you can't use your nice fabric!

  4. Yeah! So beautiful. Liberty fabrics for sleepwear is a wonderful idea. Matching bed cushions too. :)

  10. Lovely - the neckline is really pretty :) I'm actually looking at the shaukat website at the moment... so it's not just me thinking the photos are really terrible and not good representations of what you're getting? I want to try some of their jersey, but can't build up the confidence from their pics :(

  12. Thanks Sarah. It is a strange trip with all that's going on. But it's great to see family.

  13. I love them, but it is so difficult to see that actual colours.. so it's always necessary to try and find the fabric elsewhere and see the colours before buying - else it can be a bit of a gamble. The price is so good, it's worth the buy and if you don't like it - I'l buy it off you!!

  17. Ha - if it wasn't so cold here, maybe I would! Maybe when I get back to Australia.

  18. Honestly, I wouldn't do it with fabric that I would normally wear. All my Liberty sleepwear is because I bought it but couldn't see myself actually wearing it!!

  21. Ohhh, I do like the floaty pin tucks - and in Liberty = bliss.
    & definitely petite dejeuner appropriate with your kimono ;)

  22. This looks lovely, and such a good way of using the fabric. I have a couple of Liberty nighties I love - it's a nice chance to use a louder print than I'd wear for daywear. And using a Japanese dress pattern for a nightie is a great idea.
