The Vine: September 13, 2013

I'm looking for some help finding a nightdress for my mom.

She refuses to get rid of the one she's had for many years (even though it has several holes) because she can't find one she likes to replace it. She's 75 years old, widowed, conservative (so nothing too sheer/too short/whatever). She's pretty picky when it comes to nightdresses — it has to be lightweight, short-sleeved, and slippery – from what I can tell the slippery part is the most important — she hates anything like cotton or flannelette because she can't move around freely in bed.

I also need to find this from a site that ships to Canada — I found a perfect one on but as far as I can tell they only ship within the U.S.

Suggestions for fabrics/brands/websites would be welcome!
