Butterick 1824 - Men's or Boys' Yoke Night-Shirt


After 1899.  Note that this fairly early pattern doesn't yet include either a layout chart or a detailed, separate instruction sheet.

This is the time of year when sewing warm flannel garments begins to seem like a really good idea.  And of course, Christmas is coming up, so it's probably time to feature another night shirt pattern.

The back of the envelope is devoted to advertising for Butterick's magazine, the Delineator.

I love the statement - 'Answered by an Authority - the Woman Who Knows'. I must use this next time I have one of 'those' discussions with my husband, making sure that he understands where the capital letters are.....
'the Woman Who Knows' could almost be some kind of new Edwardian Super Hero....dispensing fashion etiquette advice and flannel nightwear...

The Woman Who Knows - clearly an ancestor of Miss Manners!

Or, perhaps, to quote Rumpole of the Bailey, "She Who Must Be Obeyed" (in reference to his wife). ^_^
