This is a lovely satin lounging robe or dressing gown that dates to the late 1930s or early 1940s. The robe has a small gathered “puff” at the top of the sleeve, in typical late 30s style, with small pads - note the quality of the pad (see last close-up photo). It is made of a beautiful green satin fabric, with a dusty rose pink coloured panel on either side of the opening. The robe is cut with a flare to the bottom so that the fabric falls beautifully in drapes. The cuffs of the sleeves are also trimmed in the same dusty rose colour. There is a patch pocket applied to the right side. It is made in a full length and is unlined. There is no closure or loops for a belt - because it is cut so fully there is a natural overlap. It is possible that this was meant to not securely close, so as to easily reveal whatever one would be wearing underneath.
Material: Satin, most likely a rayon, but with a lovely finish
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 14” across, seam-to-seam - note that the outer shoulders fit into the puff at the top of the sleeve
Sleeves: 24” long, from shoulder seam, including puff at top of sleeve
Sleeve Inseam: 17” long

Hips: 44” around, meant to fall loosely

This is a lovely dressing gown - 30s movie star glamour!
