First up, today would have been Daddy's 86th birthday. Wish you were here, Daddy, so I could make you a pineapple upside-down cake or a cherry cake! Here he is wearing one of his favorite bathrobes:
We will love and remember you forever and a day. You were the most wonderful Daddy ever.
Check out this great pair of paisley pajamas from a 1945 advertisement. "B.V.D. Invented Comfort" - how nice of them!:
I found both of these vintage patterns at an estate sale. A pullover PJ top with a belt and three pockets? That's different:
But they all look pretty comfortable. These two styles are more often seen:
Here's a nice-looking robe; it was found with the same pattern lot:
But I bought this one years ago at a shop or an antiques show:
I liked it because it reminded me of the Beacon robes I like so much, right down to the sewn-on braided trim. I have a vintage heavy cotton blanket in a pink and white floral that I thought would make a lovely robe. Trouble is, I can't afford to have somebody make it for me. Maybe some day. I mentioned in my Beacon post that Johnny Galecki wears one of the vintage bathrobes in "The Big Bang Theory". This time I found a picture to show you - see?
There isn't much that's more comfortable than PJ's or a nice bathrobe, is there?
