Dressing gown


Not on view

Seen here is a quintessential dressing gown of the period with military-style cuffs, cord belt and paisley pattern. This was a popular style in the mid- to late-Victorian period, for while the popularity of paisley shawls had waned, the pattern lived on in various other permutations. This dressing gown is a particularly nice example because the teal color is carried throughout in the pattern and the cord as well as the lining. Also, the warp print fabric in back adds aesthetic interest.
