I have a favorite nightgown that I've been wearing for 21yrs and I want to make one just like it. It was an expensive nightgown and robe set made from 100% cotton that I bought at 65% off. The gown has spaghetti straps and a top piece on the bodice that was made form 4 red and white cottons and the rest was white cotton gathered onto the bodice piece. The robe matched one of the red/white fabrics. I loved that nightgown because the cotton was so crisp and got softer with age while still keeping a great drape.
A couple days ago I woke up early and tip toed out of the bedroom to go to my sewing room to sew. I was standing on a small stepladder putting blocks from a large quilt I'm working on at the top of my design wall when I tripped on the hem of the gown, fell off the ladder ( I wasn't hurt)and ripped the back of the gown. Darn! I should have known better than to get up on a ladder with a long gown on.
So my question is where do I find such a high quality cotton? I've thought about the Kona solids that I often use but it's not the same feel.
I appreciate any help you can offer.
