I'm looking for a pattern for a babydoll nightie for my wife. I can visualize what I'm looking for..the hard part is describing it here. I've looked at Kwiksew, Simplicity, McCalls...and I'm getting cross-eyed looking at the patterns. What I'm looking for is something with a halter top, with very simple bust, with like cups that are gathered at the bottom, but with no serious support (its sleepwear afterall), and what I think it called a empire wasit? Where its elastic right under the bust. Then a very simple skirt part from there down, obviously very short since its a babydoll...I think its called an A line? (Please forgive me for the poor description...I'm a guy after all...I know what I like my wife to wear but have never thought or learned the proper names for a lot of this stuff). I'd like to do this in a white nylon tricot or silk or something like that...with maybe a ribbon along the inner edge of the neckline. Can anyone make any suggestions?
