Eucalyptus Vintage Housecoat

Yes, that is what this color is called and even though it isn't the prettiest name, I like saying it. :-) So, I finally finished this project and now have pictures to share, not only of the housecoat but I will also post pictures (later) of the nightgown I made to go with it. :-)

Housecoat is made from this pattern:


Now, the actual finished pictures...

The Back

Details

French seams and little gathers











I found this a very easy pattern to work with and my only regret is that I made it a tad too big but at least that will give me lots of ease. I love the wrap style and it is very easy to put on. I think next time I will make it in a cute print with little flowers and do the housedress instead. That is in the future of course! :-)

Many thanks to both of my sisters, T.W for being the patient model and Kyna for allowing me to use her vintage patterns. :-)
