The bed gown has been called the "sweatshirt of the 18th century" for its cozy utility. This version has a slimmer line to reflect the styles prevalent in the last quarter of the 18th century. It has a "Diderot" or set-in rectangular collar piece that makes a shawl collar when folder over, and the instructions include illustrated, step-by-step instructions to set the collar correctly.

Most commonly seen in printed cottons, calicos, and chintzes in the Mid Atlantic American colonies, bed gowns are also seen made in linsey, linen, wool, and very occasionally, silk lutestring. Appropriate for all class levels, depending on the quality of fabrics used, this is the most common, cozy, and cute garment you can make for living history-- and it can be worn with or without stays, making it a perfect starter garment.

Based on extant garments and original images, this pattern is sized A-G with finished sizes of 30" to 54". The packet includes a 9 page illustrated construction guide.
