This peach satin dressing gown from the 1930s is trimmed in delicate, gorgeous ecru lace around the neckline and along the sleeve hems.
The front bodice has a deep long dart down from the shoulder on each side, and gathers along the under bust seam to provide fullness.
The sleeves are not only trimmed in lace, but they are also fully gathered and puffed with a tuck in thesleeve hem where the lace meets the satin.
The back is simply cut, with a waist line that drops a beautifully bias cut skirt with an elongated train. There are sashes at the side seams that cover the waistline seam when tied.
This has a zip front opening with a long decorative tassel that rides in the opening of the metal zipper's spade shaped pull.
Measurements of the gown:
38" at the bust
38" hip/ 16" down from underarm
13.5" shoulder point to shoulder point
13.25" sleeve length
10" sleeve opening

14.5" long tassel through front zip pull
39.5" metal talon zip with spade shaped pull

Condition: freshly dry cleaned. We did find a scuff about 21.25" down from the waist at the back to the left of center, and in 8" from the side seam: there is a pull about 6" long at an angle from there. This is not readily visible, but it does make this garment less than perfect.
In otherwise outstanding, excellent condition.
