Misses' robe or bed jacket, nightgown or camisole, and pants or tap-pants. This very feminine negligee ensemble will make you feel like a queen. The front buttoned robe or bed jacket have a deep v-neckline, and long set-in sleeves. The robe has narrow tie ends.The pullover nightgown or camisole have a front empire waistline bodice with under-bust darts, side slits, and spagheti straps. The pull-on pajama pants or tap pants have elastic at the waist. Stitch it from cotton, flannel, or my choice would be soft, wrinkle-resistant satin that would feel so soft against the skin.

Bed jackets are so handy if you're going to be in bed for a while. It keeps the chill from your shoulders and keeps you modest, without laying on a long, bulky robe. You can even put a bed jacket over a hospital gown while you're sitting in bed. Wearing a bed jacket is one of those old traditions that are actually handy and worthy of re-visiting.
