Absolutely smashing! The substantial fabric and elegant cut of this 1930s silk dressing gown allow it to easily double as an evening dress. The color is a rich, deep raspberry. The bodice, upper back, slightly puffed sleeves, cuffs, and matching belt all feature ornate quilted detailing that resembles trapunto. Bodice closes with snap at neck, then a row of (surprisingly easy-to-maneuver) covered buttons and loops. Skirt secures with interior and exterior snaps. Cut on the bias to skim and flatter the body, the skirt has one godet insert. Slight train. Wear this luxurious piece of clothing and feel like a Hollywood starlet.
From the (living) estate of our fun and stylish friend Barbara H. (age 77). Belonged to her grandmother.
