Nightgown Pattern / Women's Nightgown / Heirloom Nightgown Pattern / Smocked, Pleated or Gathered Neckline /Smocking Plates / Judith Marquis


Inspired by beautiful Victorian corset covers, this nightgown offers a view for both heirloom sewers and smockers.

Work with beautiful French Val laces and exquisite Swiss embroideries to create a gown of quiet elegance in fine batiste, luxurious silk or handkerchief linen. Easily achieved custom fit. Tucks, gathers, entredeux and reverse lace shaping are all employed in this design.

View A, the original heirloom gown, features tiny tucks across the front.

View B has been added for smockers. Three smocking designs are included requiring only double fullness. For a regular smocking design, it is easy enough to increase the width across the front.

The pattern instructions are filled with lots of illustrations and a few unique tips for construction. Give it a try and see if this doesn’t become one of your favourite gowns!

An Intermediate to Advanced pattern.

Sizes XS, S, M, L and XL.
