No, I don't like wearing dresses much anyway and esp not around the house. Those items are just not "me". I know people find them comfortable and it's odd that I don't, but I don't find those types of things comfortable at all.

Exactly-
left to my own devices, i.e. comfort in privacy of my home,
I dress in stretchy shorts or those super soft poly pants "pj bottoms" & soft shirt-not a dress/skirt.

I will wear dresses around the house when temperatures get above 75 degrees in the summer.

For me, it's the temperature issue, too, that determines what I wear. I live in the high desert of NM. I start out in the summer wearing shorts or capris around the house but when it gets into the high 70s and more, I put on a cool cotton dress--unfitted is cooler. By January, I'll be wearing flannel lined jeans, long underwear, and wool sweaters!

It seemed like muu muus were going out of style over there--are they making a come back? Hope so! When I lived there, I had some pretty, semi-fitted long ones--very flattering styles.

What I wouldn't give for full suit jammies with the feet in them, though!
LEOPARD print? Now that I'd like! Thanks for the idea. Might need to get a muu muu dress pattern, leopard print fabric and take it to the "local" dressmaker here in NM--they'd have fun with that--they're all Native American seamstresses used to sewing native costumes!

I was thinking about wearing Muumuus, too, the other day. I found a few listed on Amazon.com.

I found a nice one at the secondhand store yesterday, the brand was Lotus Traders Caftan | Lotus Traders Clothing It looks like it takes a long time for them to be made and to ship, but the one I bought at the thrift shop was really well made and is very comfortable, so I will probably order a couple more.
