Antique Victorian Dressing Gown Pink Fleece Wool Flannel with Leg O' Mutton Sleeve


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

From the Victorian Era here is a pink boiled fleece wool flannel ladies dressing gown.   The wool is very thick with nubs and the interior is a softer flannel wool.  It is unlined, the interior of the fabric simply has a different texture.

It has leg 0' mutton sleeves and does up with 19 mother of pearl buttons and it has a silk corded sash.  The sash may have originally had tassels on the end but these are no longer there.

The measurements make it appear to be large but it is a small size as the shoulders are quite small - Please note the following measurements for fit:

Bust:                38"

Waist:               42"

Hips:                 56"

Shoulders:        15"  

Sleeves:            23"

Overall Length:  58" at the back, it is slightly longer in the back

                          54" at the front

Condition:  It is in good condition, there is fading in areas, mainly in one fold.  This area also has some interior stains (see photos).  These stains are not very visible on the exterior as they are hidden by the heavy fold which has the most fading.

One does not come across this kind of robe very often from the 1890s.
