McCall’s 5248 Nightgown

I wanted something cute to wear to bed (other than my usual top and shorts), so I decided to make this nightgown. I’ve had this pattern for a while (I believe it’s out-of-print at this time), but I never made the gown. 



And since this wouldn’t take a lot of material, I figured I could also use up another piece of fabric from my stash. I had recently bought a similar style nightgown (Calvin Klein) from Nordstrom during the sale, so I knew I would like this style. Although the one I bought is knit, it’s the same basic style.

I worked on this yesterday. The whole thing took about 4-5 hours from start to finish. I wasn’t in a hurry, but if I was, it could have been done in just a few hours. 


I used a cotton shirting material that washes well and doesn’t wrinkle too much. It’s also very soft and gets softer the more it’s washed.

All in all, a pretty easy project.
