The Magic Bed Jacket

I wouldn't call this especially magical when you have a lot of curve hemming to do, but it is relatively easy to make.  Originally published in a 1930's edition of Fashion Service magazine (I don't remember which one), published by the Women's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences.

If you make one, let me see!


  1. PERFECT is right. I was looking for this exact pattern type. THANK YOU!!!!

  2. Thank you SO much.....this is just what my elderly, bed-ridden mother-in-law needs this winter. You made my day!!

  3. I suppose you could make this is today's fleece for a really cozy jacket!

    1. To add to that you could finish the raw edges with a wide blanket stitch rather than hemming. Close with a button and tab or ties. Patterned fleece would look good. Good idea for quilt groups looking for a nursing home charity project.
