1940s printed floral cotton dressing gown. Dramatic black contrast lapels and front facing. Black piping along shaped bust seams. Full box pleated sleeve caps with darted elbows. Wrap style with interior & exterior waist ties allow for flexible sizing. Snap closures on lapel and skirt for additional coverage. Patch pocket at right hip. Appears to be homemade. Fabric feels like cotton.
Very good vintage condition. Print is still very vibrant considering age. Some faint staining remains after having been soaked. Fabric thinning and wear in areas of constant stress (inside neck, collar edge, elbows, and sleeve openings). Mending at sleeve openings and elbows. Sleeve seam has been repaired. Presents beautifully.
