Every woman should have something that makes her feel beautiful, be it a well cut and fitted blouse, curve hugging jeans, or a silky pair of stockings. This piece of sleepwear is definitely that for me.

This night gown is knit from the top down seamlessly starting with the bra cups. The sizes for these are based on US A-D measurements and your rib cage size. Measure the rib cage size first, do no use your bra band size since these two measurements are different. Stitches are picked up from the bottom of the cups then knit down. As such, this piece can be tried on as you go. The spaghetti straps are adjustable to get the length you need. The adjustable strap hardware should be available at your local sewing store or online.

If at all possible, use the suggested yarn since it is incredibly luxurious to work with and machine washable to boot! It is stretchy so, when swatching, knit as large an area as you can stand to get the proper gauge. The gauge used is when partially stretched (unstretched gauge given as well) so pin/stretch your swatch out as desired to measure gauge. If substituting yarn, use something with stretch that you would enjoy having next to your skin.

As always, if there are questions or sizing concerns, feel free to message me.
