        1950s Child's Dressing Gown Pattern

        What a cute double breasted dressing gown! Whether you go for the notched shawl collar or the collarless option with a bias finish, the gathered waist and full skirt create a lovely silhouette, who says being stylish can't also mean being comfortable? Make it with long or short sleeves, which are cut as one with the bodice. And why not personalise the gown, any little girl would be besotted with their name embroidered on the patch pocket. The pattern also includes slip on mule slippers, perfect to use up the scraps of your fabric and complete the cosy look!
