In the continuing vein of the mid to late 40s, I just completed a day project.
Ever had a dream about fabric? Wait, who am I talking to!? I dreamt the use for this 'dotted swiss' cotton that I have. I was in my non dreaming state going to use it for a night gown, but in my dream I said, naw. I thought this set would be much more cute.
This boudoir set is a jacket thats from a mid 40s nightgown set, and the tap panties from my repro pattern. I didn't alter the shape of the jacket at all, but the flutter/cap sleeves are all me. I whipped them up. I can see the jacket being the best cover up for putting on your face after you are all dressed.
The tap panties have porcelain vintage buttons and loop button holes on the side. I love loop button holes. I lined the crotch with navy (was all I had) jersey. Its so dark, you won't be able to tell its not black.
