Another stunning lightweight 2 tone blue for summer.
Masks anyone? .... I am adding a free mask with my nightshirts. 2 layers of cotton fabric pleated and with a slit to add a filter of you want (filter not supplied). Dark blue or navy/white check. You can also order separately (min of 4, $5 each plus courier fee). Email [email protected]
Lots of orders ready for pickup by the courier. Thank you.. Sewing these has helped preserve my sanity 😉
[03/21/20] We are still operating, now with free couriers rather than just postage to help make sure nightshirts arrive . Xx
I can do a few more nightshirts later this week and then it will be too late for Xmas!!! Get in quick for your pure cotton sleep. Living the new fabric (below).

Thank you for your patience while we made the move from Auckland to Christchurch. Loving Hagley Park!. Fabric and machines will be ready to go later next week (everything came via sea). If you want to beat the queue email me to see what I have already made up in your size ([email protected])
Wishing our lovely customers a very happy holidays!!!. Our online shop is closed Dec 15-Jan 7.
More Night shirt orders out the door... You are loving the no collar ones! If you want any for Xmas gifts or the impending hot summer let us know soon as we will be closed Dec 15 to Jan 10.
Hi nightshirt lovers. We will be at the Parnell 'craft fest' Nov 17 (sat) 8-11.45 .. in the hall next to the farmers market 545 Parnell road.
[10/27/18] Thank you Warkworth and the Kowhai festival market.. my best day ever for sales including 2 repeat customers (thanks Brenda and Tony). I love happy customers!!
A lovely new navy stripe for summer, with no collar, is now up on our website.
[08/04/18] We will be at the annual 'Kowhai' market and music day (Oct 27)...a great day out.
[05/15/18] Hi folks... Pricing... I do the best I can! Pure cotton fabric is expensive and so our nightshirts range from $55 -$95 depending on fabric and sleeve length. Of that I hope to get 2 hours at minimum wage (if I am lucky)....plus fabric, website/ online shop costs, and postage. I also pre-shrink fabric so that is power and water. If you don't mind poly-cotton please try Farmers who sometimes have them. Unlike them I do not have Chinese factories and bulk buying capacity. Regards, Jess.
This is so cute I had to share. Ordered by a regular customer for his Mother. Happy mother's day!
Another no-collar nightshirt off to a customer. Most of our sales are standard (2nd photo) but we change to order. This would look gorgeous in some of our pinks and lemons!
Made like a tailor... Every seam is ironed and pinned before sewing to bring you a lovely garment. We don't overlook either (only French seams) so no scratchy bits. They don't do this in the factories!! The fabric shown here is a new one we have got a great deal on, so check the website for a great deal (just $60!). It is lovely crisp blue cotton with pale grey.
3 more nightshirts off to a new customer (monogrammed..look gorgeous!). Thanks for all your support.
You have been asking for more garment photos (rather than just fabric swabs) so we have refreshed the website photos. We also have lots more Navy options.
A lovely mid-weight pure cotton available in 3/4 and full sleeve. This customer had theirs monogrammed.
Feeling the heat??? We have some extra lightweight cottons available..many not on the website. Email us ([email protected]) and we will post you samples at no charge.
40winks will be at the huge Mission Bay markets on Monday (anniversary day).

Time to wrap up and start thinking about keeping warm this winter! Fancy a flanelette nightshirt?
[04/06/17] At Devonport Craft market this Sunday (April 9). Clarence street.
From the Middle Ages, then Italy...to now. Nightshirt wearing started in the late Middle Ages. It was actually only a long undershirt and was worn under regular clothes. In the evening when people would come back from work, they would undress and leave on only the undergarment/nightshirt which would be worn throughout the night. It was not until the 14th century that people started wearing the nightshirt as an independent clothing item to bed.
This started in Italy and soon spread to Central Europe, and by the 19th century, the nightshirt became the main nightwear which everybody, men, women, and children alike, wore to bed. They are still worn by European men and many all over the world.
Elvis looking great in a nightshirt.
Initialed nightshirt ready to post tomorrow. Love the blue and black stripes!
