Inspired by the roomy comfort of classic nightgowns and the vintage babydoll style, this nightgown includes two length options.  It is designed to combine woven fabrics with knit bands at the collar and sleeve cuffs, with no buttons or other closures. The short length is designed to fall just below the buttocks and is perfect for pairing with the included shorts or pants. The full nightgown length is designed to reach mid-calf.

Originally released as an "Add-on" to the Simcoe Pajama pattern, the Simcoe Nightgown is now a full pattern all on its own, OR purchase the SIMCOE BUNDLE and save!

    Simcoe Nightgown & PJs

    Posted by Roxanna on 2022 Oct 21st

    The Simcoe Nightgown is so pretty. It makes up easily and is such a pretty gown. Very feminine and lovely. The PJs are also so pretty and easy to make. My granddaughters love them. The shorter version will be great for summer. Thanks for such pretty night clothes and also the great range of sizes.

    I made this for my great-granddaughter as her Christmas nightwear. I was an easy sew and she loved it.

    I love it! Easy and fast to do!

The Simcoe Nightgown is reminiscent of a classic vintage style similar to those published by McCall's, Simplicity, or Butterick in the 1960's & 70's.  This design features an empire waist and bottom ruffle and is a very free-flowing design with lots of ease.  The shortie, or babydoll, 'vintage' length in particular truly showcases that classic wide fit.
