Antique French white linen night gown with lace cuffs large nightdress 1800's
This charming textile is an antique. French linen nightgown or nightdress dating to the late 1800's! This lovely textile is made from an aged white, gorgeous medium weight linen with a small amount of cotton. Beautiful hand and treadle stitching!! This long sleeved garment has lovely lace at the wrists and near the bottom hem! The lace was crocheted by hand and is such beautiful work! The fabric is gathered at the neck into the collar and there are drawstrings at the collar for closing the open neck. This gown is LONG and LARGE, a lot of beautiful white, floppy linen!!

Ideal for wearing or hanging, perhaps even deconstructing for use of that beautiful linen and lace (though that may be a shame). I like to simply hang these textiles on the back of the bathroom/bedroom door for decorative effect, however they are also lovely for wearing..

They are lovely for period costumes also! Please indicate if you would like a larger or smaller piece when you order if it is important to you. Length : 57 to 63 inches. Chest : 39 to 48 inches laid flat from one underarm to the other.

Shoulders: 20 to 22 inches seam to seam. 46 to 49 inches across the bottom laid flat. Sleeves: 22 to 24.5 inches. CONDITION : I've freshly laundered this stunning textile and it's ready to wear!

There are very few pale marks and tiny stains speckled around the body. These marks could all perhaps be bleached. Otherwise, light surface wear only, BEAUTIFUL condition! Three of these have a little monogram in red at the back of the neck. Please see above and photographs for condition details.
