~French Vintage Cotton and Linen Nightdress ~


This example of a very traditional type of French nightgown is made of cotton and linen...a fabric made with a linen warp and a cotton weft. 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 hand embroidery at the front placket and the sleeve openings, as well around neckline and a monogram which reads 'LC' worked in fancy script.

This gown is in superb condition and apparently unused condition with no repairs, stains or holes.
The fabric is fresh and crisp and it is bright white.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The measurements are: 39 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 a 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.
