The MOST gorgeous old fashioned white floor length nightgowns in flannel and cotton were in the Shop featuring products from Nova Scotia, Canada. Perhaps they can be found after all. Wish I had gotten one!

Not the cheapest but really classic ( (“all”French kids wear Petit Bateau … maybe you noticed when you lived in Normandie!) and very good quality. They have underwears, T-shirts, lots of kids clothes too and very nice stuff for Mom’s !
In our family we have a set of onesies and kids underwears that have been handed down back and forth to 7 kids! They are still impeccable! The designs are adorable for babies and young kids, with some new ideas every year. However, it is worth waiting until the sales as they are (as French say) “absolutely ind√©modables”.

They are perfect for those Christmas morning photo ops! Connie

Found beautiful choices through the online retailer the Pink Giraffe. I have ordered my girls gowns from this site for two years now and have not been disappointed.

The Vermont Country Store carries the classic flannel gowns…from Lanz. I think I even wore these when I was little

Peterman catalog sells nice nightgowns.

You can use a dress pattern and just adjust the yoke to be shorter and the skirt to be longer (it’s just a rectangle), or you can use a nightgown pattern.

I have a ton of people searching for nightgown patterns on my site, too. It’s pretty simple.

Natural might be best? And blow the candles out :) I’m sure they aren’t natural, but Laura Dare has lovely options, silky and frilly and some vibrant colors options, as well as red, so Christmas is covered, but your little ladies can wear them throughout the year.

There are Federal Flammability Standards for Children’s Sleepwear. All children’s sleepwear (above size 9 months through size 14) must comply with these standards in order to be sold in the U.S. Cotton will not meet the standard unless treated with a flame retardant (FR) chemical. Polyester will USUALLY, but not always pass the Standards. All fabric and garments must go through extensive testing. Certain tight-fitting sleepwear garments (as defined in the Standards) are exempt from the Sleepwear Standards. These garments are similar to long underwear, must fit tightly on the child’s body and can be made out of cotton fabric. They must meet a Flammability Standard, but it is much less stringent than the Sleepwear Standard. It is complicated, but certainly protects children when they are wearing sleepwear. Go to http://www.CPSC.gov to read more. You can also read about Recalls of garments that do not comply with the Standards.

The Lanz gowns are also pretty, as a previous poster said.

Our children are grown, and they have returned each year to our house to share this tradition until this year(sob). We have woke up as a family on Christmas morning for decades; they will start their traditions this year which means that my husband and I also start a new one. A relaxing morning with the anticipated arrival of our children and their families.

They are flame-resistant, but still very soft and snuggly. Last year’s was softer than the year before’s, so I know they keep improving the “soft” factor. They are lovely and always go on sale!

The ones here usually carry some very nice pretty nightgowns and they frequently have them in big kid sizes or can order them for you.

She’s super picky about comfort, so it has to be a soft cotton. I finally found the brand Sara’s Prints on the discount site 6pm.com (after checking traditional sites like Garnet Hill & Boden which didn’t have her size in a fabric I liked). I’m happy with both the print and the softness.

So pretty!

Since they make dolls from different eras, they also make clothing to match that time period. They’re a little pricey but sometimes you can get them on sale. Probably the best time to buy PJ’s is after Christmas.

They are hard to find! I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s responses. And while Google is a friend to all, it’s also nice to share advice mom to mom!
