Size Medium, Women's Bed Gown c. 1760s-1770s

$18.00

Pattern By: Larkin and Smith

Made in the USA


This bed gown pattern is based on original English bed gowns c. 1770s. The bed gown is fully lined with long sleeves that can be turned up to make a cuff or left long. Period construction is noted in the directions with alternate hand finish/machine directions. Also included in the pattern are instructions for making a petticoat, apron and handkerchief. This gown is an easy starter project for the beginning seamstress. Bed gowns are not formal wear and do not require stays for a good fit (although stays should be worn with them). Because of this, women with proper gowns might consider a bed gown to wear in the morning before you've put on your stays or in the evening after a hot day. In The Pennsylvania Packet of 1775, "Ran Away . . . an Irish servant girl . . . had on and took with her . . . two striped bed gowns, one lincey and the other linen" as cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls.
