Sleep shirt with vintage trim

I've been looking for a comfortable, lightweight, breathable, wash and wearable nightshirt for some time, so after looking and not finding, I had to break into the fabric stash and make it myself. So out came the rulers and paper, and after some fitting and revising, I had a pattern. Then there was the hunt for the trim. The trim on this shirt is so old, it was in my mother's stash! I've had it in my hands a million times over to either sell or donate, but just could not part with it. I'm happy I kept it, it's everything I ever wanted.
