Vintage 1940s zip front dressing gown is lovely and springy in a cold rayon that flows over the figure. The deep maroon ground is printed with flowers of bright blue, cinnabar and white, with a touch of green. The shapes of tulips are outlined as if they were an embroidery pattern, little stitch marks of white of and green. The collar is wide. The pockets at the front are deep enough to useful. And best of all it zips up the front. Both easy and delightful to wear.
Label: None Present
Material: Cold Rayon
Condition: Fair plus, but exceedingly wearable, has old repairs
This garment is clean and ready to wear. There are two seam pops on the waist closed up by hand. The damage to this piece is a little odd,because for the most part, the material looks and feels sturdy. However, both shoulders have stitched in patches (of heartbreakingly lovely silk charmeuse from the period) repairing hanger fatigue, and there is a another such area, a cross shaped tear, repaired in the same fashion. I also interfaced a 1/4" hole at the front. See last photos. Despite these, this looks amazing on, and it's a great piece to use as your daily go-to robe without guilt.
