While on the mention of vintage nightgowns I thought it only proper to incluez pretty nouveau nightgowns also I have several nightgowns like the one in this picture. I call them summer nightgowns. Our cold winters and my 1920 era drafty home would not allow me to wear the sleeveless gown unless I was pose on the sofa bed with piles of  édredons and blankets. Even then I'm afraid my arms would have goose bumps.
Summer time though and I take a long hot bath and glissez dans a simple cotton gown like the one above.

Do you have a collection of nightgowns or a robe de nuit such as this one?
Ayez un beau jour


  1. Hi Jill, I'm visiting from Show and Tell Friday. This is my first time visiting your blog and I love it. I wish my home looked like all of your pictures. It's just beautiful. I'm now a follower.

  2. Jill - I can just imagine you strolling through your beautiful garden on a summer morning with your cup of breakfast tea in your sweet nightgown. What a perfect way to begin the day. :)
