Stunning Vintage Late 30s Silk Jacquard Scenic Asian Dressing Gown -
Rich and dramatic, this dressing gown from the late 1930s evokes that bygone era of extreme glamour when loungewear wasn't just a pair of yoga pants and a tee shirt. This alluring emerald green robe is made from whisper soft, light-weight silk that's a jacquard weave featuring pastoral Asian village scenes. Do take a look at our close-ups and keep in mind that the color variances are due to the cameras limited capability of capturing this divine creation. This is a rich and opulent green shade, nuanced beautifully with all of those gorgeous scenes depicted in it.
The gown has puff sleeves that are typical of late '30s, early '40s fashion. On the cuffs, there's topstitching that adds contrast. That same topstitch trapunto-type detail is repeated on the extreme collar piped in black. This closes with big black frog style closures in keeping with the Asian theme of the dressing gown. The entire robe is lined in white silk. It also has a contrasting black silk sash belt.
Slip into this pretty, elegant dressing gown and take yourself back in time. You will feel just like a bombshell movie star from the '30s. Don't worry. No one will fault you for your little reverie. The fantasy comes true to life when you're wearing this.
Good. There is light staining on both underarms. photo here shows it up close. It's lightly visible. (11th photo shows that.) The next flaw shown is a small pull in the fabric at the back of the gown. There's a small stain shown, too--a light smudge. Two inches of the lining needs to be resewn at the underarm.
