When my DD was born, I made my own hospital gown. It was really pretty and it completely covered my backside lol. The sleeves were velcro so I could easily un-velco to nurse her when she was born.

A few people told me I should make hospital gowns and sell them, but I'm wondering if they would sell. Would you buy one? and if so, how much would you expect to pay for one?

here are the only pics I have. It got kinda ruined after delivery lol

 Ohhh!! That's a totally untapped market for mainstream women, meaning make them affordable and I bet people woud definately buy them.

 

Ohh!! And make matching gowns for the baby girls :0) That would ROCK!!

Sounds like a neat idea and if it covers everything I'm sure there would be plenty of people interested. Your only problem would be marketing and once ya got that down ya would have to worry about keeping up supply to manage demand. I think $20 would be a reasonable price but depending on the fabric/materials used and time spent, you could go up or down. I would probably try to stay under $30 to peak more interest and get more sales though. :-)

I like the idea. I would have to see it in order to determine what I would be willing to pay.

 I would have loved something like that. I brought my own nightgown to the hospital. I had a hard time finding one that was breastfeeding friendly. I had to get one that had buttons down the front for easy access. Velcro shoulders would have been so convenient.
