How to Make a 1930s Bed Jacket

Now that the colder weather is upon us, I find myself changing over the wardrobe to warmer clothing. Out come the sweaters and wool pants! We held off turning the furnace on for as long as possible but finally caved near the end of October. The "heating season" in New England is rather long and as a true Yankee I typically willing to add an extra layer if it means saving a little on the heating bill. :)

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday I thought I would share a free pattern that I came across awhile back. Originally posted on Sewing Vintage, this is a pattern for making a lovely little 1930s bed jacket. 

If you use the pattern I would love to see how it turns out! Enjoy!


  1. Oh my, I've been looking for a pattern like this. Thank you very much, I may well give it a go, if I can ever find the time!! x

  2. SO glad you found this useful! Would love to see your finished bed jacket if you do make it. And I totally understand not having enough time to work on things! Especially this time of year.

  3. Just found your blog from Pinterest, so glad I did! When I was little, my Mama made one every time she had a new baby, so she would be pretty for visitors. Times have changed! My daughters were home before the babies were 6 hours old!
