My late Auntie M always slept in a sleep cap. And all of her pillowcases were satin. This guaranteed that her silvery "once-a-week-wash-and-set" hairdo never lost its fluff. She also only slept in long nightgowns. She passed the nightgown ritual on to all of her nieces. I fine-tuned it a bit and tossed the tiny floral print and flannel part. My gowns are always white and one-hundred percent cotton. If it's cold, I put flannel pants under and an old ratty cashmere cardigan on top.
In case your interested in the tradition, here are a few resources:
I am a former fashion industry entrepreneur, mother of two, and budding baker and events planner/caterer transplanted from NYC to Sao Paulo, Brazil via marriage. I have created this blog to share, brainstorm, invent, vent, and delight in life as a work-from-home mother and "modern" housewife! So grab on to my apron strings, lets get creative.
