Vintage 1940s Dressing Gown Satin with Asian Motifs Ladies M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 1940s dressing gown or lounging robe featuring a woven Asian design in multiple colours of red, yellow, lilac, black, light blue, orange, grey and black against a silver grey satin background. The pattern consists of pagodas, Chinese flora and peasants with carts. It has padded shoulders, stitched shawl lapels and cinches with a matching sash belt. The cuffs are also stitched. This 1940s dressing gown has a pocket at either side. It closes with an internal tie and two frog closures as well as with the sash belt. It is lined in satin fabric.
Age: 1940s, maybe early 50s. The squared padded shoulders are typical of 1940s fashion.
Label: Only a size label
Material: Rayon satin
Sizing: Size 34 is indicated, so this 1940s dressing gown should fit a woman that fits a US size medium - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 16” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 22 1/2” long from the shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 17” long
Bust: 36, taken under the arms
Waist: 31” around
Overall length: 51”, measured flat at the back from the neck seam
Condition: This 1940s dressing gown is in very good condition - a very light moisture stain on the upper lining (very minor) that I haven’t tried to remove as well as a spot on the right pocket (see last close-up photo) and another at the lower right opening edge. Otherwise, clean with no wear, tear or other defect. Otherwise, this 1940s dressing gown looks to have seen little use.
This is a striking 1940s dressing gown - lovely colour, elegant length, wonderful piece for lounging!
