Utterly charming 1930s wrap gown in a silky-smooth fine cotton, trimmed up with pink grosgrain that has been hand-embroidered with three different decorative stitches, including a chain of flowers. The William Morris-inspired Arts & Crafts print is so lovely, with a background of medium blue and colorful leaves and berries? flowers? in pinks, dusky peach, robin's egg, and tomato red. The portrait collar is triple-layered and has the grosgrain/embroidery trim. The puffed sleeves have an angelic winged cut.
This was most likely originally intended as loungewear or a hostess dress, a wrap gown or robe, although it certainly can be worn as a dress as it covers everything that needs to be covered, and wraps all the way across body, securing inside with a rayon ribbon at side waist and then again at the opposite side of waistline with a hidden metal clasp. The waist has an old-style wide tunneled elastic band inside so it has stretch to fit a range of waistlines.
The entire dress appears to be finely home-made, with pinked seams and a mix of both machine- and hand-sewn techniques.
All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.
