My Comments:

I think this is adorable.  Every time I think of a housecoat or housedress it always makes me think of "I Love Lucy"; she was always wearing one in her apartment!

I have a original vintage housecoat from about the 1940s... gorgeous.  It has to be worn with heels though, which always makes me feel like I'm going to trip on it and fall on my face.  I have worn it the occasional Christmas morning though :)

I'm definitely putting this pattern on my list of future vintage patterns to make.
