~French Vintage Nightgown in Fine cotton~

~Beautiful Hand Embroidery~

~~~~~~~~~~

This gown is fresh, charming and feminine.

Usually these gowns were ordered by the dozen and frankly often many of those were never worn. Stored away in armoires, they have slept for decades to emerge in beautiful if 'dusty' condition. A wash and drying in the French sunshine has brought this one back to virtually 'new' condition.

This lovely example of this traditional type of French gown is made of fine cotton.

These charming gowns were were often made by Sisters in convents as a way to help support the order.

That helps to explain the beautiful detailing and superb hand embroidery that one almost always finds adorning these gowns and also the fact that these gowns are just beautifully made. They were sewn to last and they do.

This one has tiny pin tucks at the the yoke, and around the arm openings, as well, around the neckline is lovely hand emmbroidery. This gown closes to one side with little mother-of-pearl buttons which is a convenience for a nursing mother, but this gown is appropriate for anyone who loves lovely feminine gowns.
Also there is a tiny monogram in embroidered script which reads 'F A'.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The measurements are: 44 inches long from shoulder to hem, 20 inches when pulled flat across the gathered chest at underarms and the arm openings are a generous 18 inches around.

Although we cannot assign actual sizes to these vintage items, we could say that this gown is of an generous 'medium' size.

Please carefully check your measurements against those we give, and remember that these gowns were cut amply for comfort.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This fine gown is in excellent vintage condition and the silky cotton fabric is fresh and crisp.
I have only found 2 tiny flaws...there is a tiny pinprick spot on one arm opening and another very faint and pale spot about the size of a dime on the lower skirt. Both these are truly barely noticable but I mention them to be correct in my description.

This lovely gown will come to you freshly hand laundered and ironed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This French nightgown is perfect for any woman who loves elegance and comfort combined!
