At The Pyjama House we stock a very pretty range of vintage style white 100% cotton nighties made by Powell Craft in Cornwall, plus our own new Jersey nightie (Ella) available from Spring 2020.
The new "Ella" nightdress is made from super-soft, viscose jersey fabric that washes well, barely requires ironing and is terrifically comfortable to wear. With sleeves to the elbow and falling to the knee it is suitable for all age groups. It is available in five dress sizes (6 to a generous 18). Viscose is a man-made but ecologically sustainable fabric as it is made from plants.
Cotton Vintage Nighties
The Powell Craft designs are all copies of original antiques so they have a distinctive vintage appeal. They are called Eliza, Anna, Margo and Juliet and are described in more detail below.
The "Eliza" ladies nightgown is a 3/4 length sleeved nightdress with a square neck, buttons down the front and features a broderie anglaise trim. This nightie is made in a slightly thicker cotton so is more suitable perhaps for winter. Length 124cm // Bust 124cm. One size - suitable up to dress size 18.
The "Anna" nightdress is long-sleeved with a pretty pin-tucked V-shaped neck, buttons down the front and falls to mid calf. It is generously cut so suitable for a wide range of dress sizes - size 10 up to a size 16.
The "Margo" nightie is a very romantic fine cotton nightdress with frilly cap sleeves and white ribbon ties. It is decorated with white embroidered roses and pintucks. The chest measures up to 99cm/39" when pulled out and the length is 122cm/48" One size - Suitable for dress size 8-12 only as slimmer than the other nighties around the bust.
