Sewing and Crochet-A Twenties Negligee


A straight, floor-length negligee with smocked Empire waist, trimmed with crochet, from Modern Priscilla, May 1923. Two pages of instructions for making the negligee and crochet trim can be downloaded from my Flickr account.


The boudoir cap pattern is not included; but is a length of crochet with a circle of linen or muslin sewn to it.
