"There is nothing more necessary to the wardrobe of the woman of taste and refinement, whatever the time of year, than a dressing gown. Good models, hand embroidered, are highly priced in the shops, but the clever needlewoman can make one for herself at half the cost. What could be smarter, simpler or more easily made than the one sketched here, with its graceful kimono sleeves, made practical by a slash at the side as well as the lower edge to slip the arm through? It would make up successfully in Shantung, artificial silk, a light weight wool crepe-de-chine or wool marocain, and would be very luxurious and restful in wool-backed satin."
This pattern is from an old Needlework magazine from 1933 .. there are full instructions .. both written and in diagram form .. for you to draft your own pattern to fit perfectly.
NOTE:( NO actual pattern pieces)
It is not too difficult to draft your own pattern from paper .. just a few simple body measurements are taken.
The pattern has been carefully re-worked with some additions from me to make the process easier. There are 11 pages in the download.
Although I have included the embroidery sketches for the flowers and butterflies there is NO actual transfer pattern included. No embroidery would be needed if a patterned or damask silk was used for the gown.
This is a classic Art Deco design from the 1930's .. beautiful.
The instructions will be sent to you by instant download as a pdf. Make sure you have the correct email address to speed the transaction.
