Craft ladies cotton nightdresses come in a variety of styles and lengths, but they are all free size so it can be difficult to choose the right style for your size and shape. Some of the nightdresses are knee length, some are ankle length and some are just in between. Some of them fit up to chest size 48 inches but some of them are more suitable for smaller chest sizes, so I have attempted to make a short guide to the different Craft nightdress designs available. All of the nightdresses are handmade from hundred percent pure cotton and the majority of them are white with some kind of embroidery or lace detail as the designs are based on Victorian originals. The longer length nightdresses are about ankle length on most ladies, although where they come to exactly depends on your height. The longest length nightie is the Vivienne, which is forty-nine inches in length and is measured from the neckline to the bottom of the hem.The Vivienne is white cotton with long sleeves with delicate embroidery on them, a collar and a v-neckline finishing with large mother-of-pearl buttons down the centre, and pin tucking on the chest. It will fit an inch chest. Make a search on the below mentioned website, if you are looking for more details about nina shepherds bush.
