Hello all,

here is a sketch, or rather two sketches of my idea how the nightie might  
look like:

Comments very welcome.

  very pretty.  Having used stretch lace on nighties for two  
granddaughters though they complained that it was scratchy even after  
being washed several times. So you might want to try a small piece and  
see how it washes. I prefer a rounded back neck I find them farm more  
comfortable if the back  is raised some.You can do that by doing a high  
rounded back  alteration. I like a lettuce edge idea, It's very feminine.

I would go with the rounded back neckline; the straight back will be a little weaker at
the corners and more likely to roll out than the rounded back.

My only other comment is the dolman sleeve -- that has a tendency to cause the front  
neckline to rise up while the back neckline drops because there's no armhole  
balance.  Worse on some people than others, but seems to occur on nearly  
every dolman garment.

Should be a comfortable gown!
