Clara's 1940s Pajamas

This week, Clara has some more pajamas. Last week, they were from the 1930s, and this week, they're from the 1940s. Once again, the pajamas are two very different styles of nightwear — one is a lacy, ruffled nightdress, and the other is a practical, comfy pair of pajamas.

Clara would be very comfortable in either of these 1940s pajamas. The nightgown has a nice ruffled neckline trimmed with ribbon. The high geometrical waistline adds a stylish touch, and the soft a-line gown would create a flattering silhouette.

The two-piece pajamas are for a colder evening with long, blousy sleeves gathered loosely at the wrist. A sweetheart neckline was very popular in the 40s. The loose pants would be comfortable instead of restrictive.

    1. Yes, I draw the outfits. I find a dress or something I want to draw for Clara, then sketch it on tracing paper over the Clara paper doll. Then I scan the tracing paper, and draw the clothing on the computer. And then I post it for everyone on my blog.

      I drew these nightgowns for you. You posted a comment back in March asking if I had nightgowns for Clara. I posted one set, but I wanted to draw a few other pajamas, too. Now Clara has pajamas from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s.
