Ask-Design-Mom Question:
Dear Design Mom, I have an almost 8 year old who refuses to sleep in anything other than nightgowns. However, I have a difficult time finding classic nightgowns. I know there has to be some delightfully sweet ones out there… Any ideas? Thanks, Stacey

Design Mom Answer:
What a great question, Stacey. And how much fun for me to find some great sources for traditional nightgowns. Although my own daughters crave snug-fitting cotton pjs, I love seeing them in classic gowns. They make me want to pull out the sponge rollers. Some of these sources you’ll likely recognize, and some may be new. I hope this helps!

Possibly my favorite option is the robe and gown set pictured above from CWDKids. So girly and so classic.



If you’re still craving something cozy, Vermont Country Store carries a flannel nightgown by Lanz of Salzburg in 2 sweet patterns.


I love this sweet, summery, English, hand-smocked option. Available up to size 14.



At Good Orient there are lots of pretty options. They list them as dresses, but I prefer them as nightgowns.


Garnet Hill Kids and Boden Kids both have similar nightgown options in up-to-date cuts.

How about you, Design Mom Readers? Where do you find classic girls nightgowns?
