We have a true passion for early clothing. 19th century antique dressing gowns, nightgowns and other intimate wear are very special in my opinion...they are often hand made, or mostly handmade...such as this. They preserve a more intimate sense of our sisters from the mid 19th century.
SIZE: Small....bust is approx 34-maybe 35". The armscye measures 14", Length: 48-1/2", shoulders are approx 14"
