Why a hospital gown I'm sure someone out there is thinking? Well, I liked the lines of it in a weird 'can-I-wear-that-as-sleepwear-because-it-looks-comfy' way. I also wondered if I could modify a pattern (never mind that I've modified patterns before) to make it work.
Basic reference pictures at right.
Front, shoulder, trim detail, back view.
If you squint at the last picture, you can see the tie at back.
The Gown: Simplicity 3928, which had to be ordered from Simplicity as none of the stores here carried it. I used view D, with the sleeves modified to be raglan and the sleeve length extended a little. Also modified to have the tie on the left panel go through a hole on the right seam so it can be tied in the back or the front. The length was actually somewhere between C and D and I used bias binding to edge the front panels and as the ties -- made the same way as the trim for the ROTS Dressing Gown Underdress, but without the filler and ironed flat.
The fabric was a remnant of grayish t-shirt knit I found at Hancock Fabrics on their $1-something remnant table and I used 1 package of Oyster color bias tape.
My pictures are below and I'm quite happy with how this turned out:
