This product is unavailable

This is an antique cotton nightgown dating to the turn of the century. The piece does up at the upper center front with six shell buttons - the top four buttons are covered by the flounce collar, only the bottom two buttons show. The neckline area is decorated with embroidery, eyeletting and lace. The back of the garment has narrow gathering at the yoke, which allows the body of the piece to be fully cut and comfortable. The sleeves have bell shaped fine muslin sleeves, edged with lace.


Age: c 1890-1905

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a large, tall size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Neck:  approximately 18 inches around

Shoulders: 18" across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 26" long, including cuff

Sleeve Inseam: 21" long

Bust: 56", taken under the arms, meant to hang loosely

Waist: 65", around, meant to hang loosely

Hips: 78" around, meant to hang loosely

Overall length: 60", measured flat

It is in very good condition with no wear or tear but there is one small rust spot under the flounce at the back, not visible because it is covered by the flounce - would come out with the right stain remover. Otherwise, this nightgown looks like it saw little use and well cared for and stored over the years.

This is a wonderful antique nightgown - nice quality cotton and decorative work....large size.
