Description

A ‘Dressing Gown’ for the 18th C.

The pattern for this was based on a diagram from a book, with idead from Banyans in the V&A, The Museum of London and others. It has magyar sleeves with a deep cuff added to lengthen them. The front band is cut in several pieces and there are gores up the sides. This is an authentic period method for using up and not wasting expensive fabrics and geeting the widest flare possible. I have a small bit keft that might just be large enough for a reticule! Or a gentleman’s bed cap.

The closures are metal cloak clasps.

Material Notes

Silk and metallic threads brocade with a polycotton sheeting lining.
