About Us



Hello Dear Customers and Friends,

Thanks to all of you for a wonderful 2015/16 Nightwear season.

My first year of running Arlene was a great success.

Now that the nights are getting chilly, it's time to start thinking about fannelette again.

There are some new fabrics and some perennial favourites to choose from.

I thought it would be fun to honour Canada's 150th birthday in 2017 by adding some Maple Leaf print nightshirts to the mix.

The name and website remain the same: and the email
address is

I would like to wish you all a wonderful fall and winter and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,


Thank you, dear customers and friends who have bought from us for over 2 decades. Thanks too for kindly recommending our products to your family and friends.

Jayne Christopher


We make 100% cotton flannel and broadcloth nightgowns, nightshirts and pyjamas for women, and nightshirts for men. Our products are comfy, sewn with care, and elegantly simple in design. They are based on traditional styles that are practical for everyday life. We search for thick, warm fabrics with a vintage look, and leave out the lace and frills. Our roomy sizes are geared to fit the shapes and sizes of real people.

Since 1982 we've sold over 10,000 nightgowns, nightshirts and pjs, for 24 years at Toronto's One of a Kind Show, where we met many customers who came back year after year, got to know our products well, and still buy from us by phone and email, as we no longer do shows.

Our nightwear makes a quality gift that does not look mass-produced. It is expertly sewn by us in our small cottage industry with love and great skill - something that is getting harder to find and that might remind you of a special nightgown somebody made for you for Christmas when you were little...We hope our nightwear gives you that same cosy feeling and we hope our customers' old favourites become your favourites, too.



We have many new and colourful cotton flannels, flannelettes, and broadcloths this year

All nightwear is made to order.
We accept Canadian cheques, Paypal, and Electronic Money Transfers (email internet banking transfers). We ship internationally by Canada Post, traceable and insured.
