Here‘s a pattern for an Edwardian kimono nightgown. I’ve made a slightly sloping shoulder seam, so my kimono nightgown is made from two fabric pieces. I’ve sewn a flat fell seam on the shoulder seams, and a french seam on the side seams, as this 1919 source suggests.

I’ve joined three different cotton laces as sleeve finish.
