Birthday nightgown

I finished my nightgown today.
Perfect for lazing about on warm mornings, reading the Times and drinking iced tea...

The yarn is new, but the linen is an old sheet and the buttons are from my grandmother's jar of buttons collected over many, many years.

A single button at the bust...

I lined the inside of the knitting with light blue satin...

(note wee, delicious buttons at the back)

The final piece of this will be a pair of knit boy-shorts that uses the same lace scalloping at the legs.

Happy birthday, indeed.
