This vintage black cotton pullover garment is a priest's robe or could also be used as a choir robe.
*single button closure
*raglan cut sleeves
The raglan cut sleeves suggest more 60s than 50s, possibly.
We consider this a unisex garment...most likely was for a guy, but maybe for a girl, too. Works for both, as a costume element.
up to 46" chest/bust
48" long center back of the neck to the hem
sleeves: 31" long from center back of the neck to the sleeve hem (raglan cut)
17" around sleeve hem
84" sweep of hem
condition: this has a center front opening below the single button at the top of the neck. Near that opening there is a mended area. You can see that patched area in the front close up image, and we've also included an even closer close up of that mended area for you to inspect. In a dark bar or nightclub? not visible.
As you can see, this is not perfect, but it has potential as part of a Halloween (or stage) costume.
