Winter Nightgowns for Saraya

She knows what she likes to wear, my girl. She always has. And it's dresses by day, and nighties by night. She simply doesn't like shorts or jeans or pyjama pants.

And so I gave myself the challenge many months back to find her some cosy warm nightgowns for winter. This was even harder than I thought it would be. Were I a sewer, I would make them myself - but I am not. This is a reality I've had to come to face! So I began to look in big shops, small shops, market stalls..... and eventually, online. After months of searching, success! Thank you Etsy.

They are perfect. Handmade. Soft. Warm. And they both meet their owner's approval nicely.

She prefers the white one with dots, but she wanted to save that one for tonight because Nanna will be here. :) I'm so happy to have found them!

Well, I'm the opposite. It would be very unusual to find me in any form of dress.
These are beautiful. The first one reminds me of a nightdress I had when I was little. It's a shame they aren't as readily available now.
I'm glad you found such lovely nighties.

Very nice, Saminda! :) I often forget about Etsy when searching for things! There are so many beautiful, wonderful, and unique items on there! :) And for what it's worth I can't sew clothing either...I've tried and I keep trying...LOL! ;)

Hope you are going well & keeping well - have a great day
