Hi all!

I'm assembling a list of resources for the Veranda Nightgown. I hope to start working on this project soon and have it ready for spring, especially since the baby bump will soon prevent me from wearing all other costumes. Please let me know if you have suggestions for better products or additional references, tips from working on this costume yourself, or answers to the questions I currently have below marked with ***. Thanks!

Good luck with this project! Very Happy It looks like you have your bases covered with references and know where to find what you need.

I think I like the Mood fabric best and the second set of slippers, because they're a bit lighter.
