A sweet little bed jacket made in the 1930s. Handmade in the softest pink satin it is an edge to edge design with a simple tie at the front. It has been decorated with light brown machine made lace flowers.
Fair/good with some minor points to note;
- there are 3 darns on the back and one on the sleeve
- when held up to the light there are some areas of thinning
- both the underarm seams have hand sewn repairs
It has been well loved and someone clearly cared for it and looked after it well but it has had a past life and isn't in the best shape. Having said that, it is perfect for the true vintage lover.
The piece is meant to be worn quite loose and is a little big for the dummy so probably well suited to a 38"/40". Actual measurements;
Flat bust across back 22"
Shoulders between sleeves 21"
Shoulder to hem 22"
Underarm sleeve length 6.5"
