The Housecoat for the New Modern Housewife By Marusya

Did I men­tion that dur­ing the wed­ding prep & August sewing mad­ness– I was sewing a house­coat for my sister?!

When Kate and I went fab­ric shop­ping for her bridal gown, we found this fab­ric in the clear­ance section!We both fell in love with it! The flo­ral striped fab­ric design looked SOOO much like our pil­low cases grow­ing up!

Weeks prior to her wed­ding, Kate had a bridal shower. So instead of mak­ing her a silk night gown (as orig­i­nally planned), I built her a house­coat with this fabric!

Orig­i­nally I planned to use one of my babcha’s vin­tage pat­terns, but unfor­tu­nately there wasn’t enough fabric.

So ulti­mately, I chose a more mod­ern house­coat style!

I used a Burda Style coat pattern.

I changed the pat­tern to one but­ton rather than three buttons.
