This gown is an authentic , Victorian c. 1880s Morning Tea Gown. The “Undress” or deshabille robe de chambre, was an unstructured garment of nightgown quality, worn in the morning, inside a lady’s boudoir. Created as an undress garment.

It is made of a heavy weight cotton with ivory white ruching .

The gown is one piece and of a simple construction. The body is loose fitting and flares out widely with a short train being very loose and roomy in back and bottom.

It completely opens down the front with Mother of Pearl buttons and  has a short high neckline.  It has an overlayer on front and back yoke and down front. This consists of 1 7/8″panels of ruching separated with 1 1/8″ panels of beautiful , decorative, elaborate eyelet lace.

The gown has long narrow sleeves with large folded over cuffs that have matching panels of ruching and lace.

The condition is very nice for it’s age. It has one long thin line on left lower side ( pic), a couple of lighter round spots on skirt side , a couple of smaller dots and a tiny , thin line stitched repair on back skirt. I have tried to show in pics that will show.

The gown was loosely measured  laid flat : 36″ bust/ 38″ waist/ 58″ hips/ 14″ around upper arm/ 21″ sleeve/ 56″ front length/ 59″ length back.
