French Linen Antique (1918) Nightdress, Wearable as a Dress
This genuine antique item is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Made in France of 100% heavy linen. The initials of the original owner are EP and are embroidered at the neckline. The date, which is faded, is also there (1918). The red thread colour has faded onto the surrounding area, otherwise it is in very good condition for its age. I just noticed a pinhead size age spot near the top back edge. This is a nubby linen. A very rare and unusual piece, can be worn as a dress. The long sleeves have hand-crocheted edging.Photos show the sleeve edging, the shoulder stitching, the underarm gusset, and the beautiful inside seam work. The model is 5'2"
Measurements:shoulder seam to hem 40.5", bust area 23.5", sleeve length 20". The item measures 38.5" across at bottom hem (67" circumference).
No odor, mold or mildew. Smoke-free, pet-free home.
