~French Vintage Cotton Nightdress ~


This is a classic example of a very traditional type of French nightgown and it is made of cotton. These gowns were worn by decades of French school girls and they come in a wide variety of variations on this 'theme.'

Now they make wonderful summer dresses as they are or dyed. And they are wonderful for maternity wear...loose and comfortable!

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

That helps to explain the beautiful detailing and 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 lovely hand embroidery around the the front placket and the sleeve openings, as well around neckline and a monogram which reads 'I'm not sure what' because it is so fancy!

Because this one has a couple of tiny, tiny spots at the lower back skirt and several tiny and virtually un-noticable pin-dot size holes here and there too, we have given this gown a nice low price. Otherwise this gown is in really superb condition and it is a quality example of the type, crisp and snowy white.

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


The measurements are: 40 inches long from shoulder to hem, 17 inches across at the shoulders, 22 inches when pulled flat across the gathered chest at underarms, and the sleeve openings measure 14 inches around.

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

Please carefully check your measurements against those we give and remember that these gowns were meant to fit loosely for comfort.

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

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