I found these patterns in my stash. I've had them for awhile and I think originally they came from a friend's mother. When I was a student, and back from the city, I worked in their drapery shop. The shop was like a treasure trove to me. It's a shame that not many of these old school type of shops exist anymore. Well, not where I live. I would much prefer to rummage through the stock in one of these shops, than clinically shop on-line. The experience is not quite the same.
The druleigh pattern is not one I've seen before. The nightdress would be great to try out closer to summer and I don't think it will need alot of adjusting or redrafting. Which is definitely not a strength of mine. Sorry for the poor quality photos!!
