Last week I did some shopping a few towns up north and was lucky enough to find two beautiful vintage night gowns. When I finally got back home there was a third waiting on my bed for me - a gift from my mother. Seeing as there were some additions I thought I might show you all my small but growing vintage sleepwear collection.
I found this one last year for only a couple of dollars. It is very comfortable to wear in summer.
This was one of the ones I bought on that day shopping, and for only $3.50. It fits like a glove and I fell in love with the embroidered daisies on it as soon as I laid my eyes on it. It is in very good condition, though the top button has been replaced with another. But if you know me you'll know that doesn't bother me in the slightest.
This is the gown that my mother surprised me with. It is by far the most comfortable out of what vintage sleepwear I have. The material of the inner lining is so smooth and the gown fits beautifully.
This is the other night gown that I found up north, but in a different town. Really, these pictures do not do this gown justice. Its colour is so vibrant! The gown is also in very good condition. It had been sitting in the store for a few months, but for some reason I never tried it on. I had a change in heart that day and went for it, and I am glad I did. I think I would have been very upset if I left it once more and came back to finally buy it yet find it gone.
This here was my first bought vintage night gown. I fell in love with the tiny polka dot print and ruffled matching brunch coat as soon as I saw it and had to make it mine. It's condition is beautiful.
Finally, this lovely yellow lace brunch coat. It was one of the very first vintage items I ever remember buying. It was from a local market place and it was the buttoned cuffs and collar that caught my eye. I love this coat so much that, even though it is to be worn as a nightwear garment, I sometimes would wear it over the top of my dresses when going out about town - feeling rather fancy indeed!
My vintage pink pyjama bag, a gift from my mother about three years ago, is a sweet little addition to my humble collection and is good for storing any of my vintage sleepwear when travelling. In my collection I also have two dressing gowns, which you can view here and here.
I plan to keep continuing to expand my vintage sleepwear collection. But in all honesty I don't think I will ever consider having enough until I find myself a pair of vintage pink faux fur heeled slippers.
Oh, by the way. My apologies for how dreadfully dark these pictures are! Golly I miss having a natural source of lighting. Big beautiful windows are a must when the boy and I find another place to live!
