Victorian nightgown or not, I went for it and made another Wilder Gown. This was actually the first one I wanted to make, but Stonemountain had just shy the amount of yardage I needed, so it was put on the back burner until more stock came in.
PATTERN – Wilder Gown by Friday Pattern Company
FABRIC – Textured Yarn Dyed Cotton Square Stitch in Black from Stonemountain Fabric
SIZE – Medium
MODS – read on
ACCESSORIES – Sienna Maker Jacket, vintage roper boots.
For this version I shorted the skirt pattern piece by 2″, shortening the dress overall by 4″, which I think works much better on my 5’2″ frame. The bottom tier of the skirt is made up of three panels and I decided to make it into two so everything needed to be cut on cross-grain (it’s a LONG pattern piece).
I also, of course, added in-seam pockets. Twirl on!
