This truly iconic 1940's blush pink satin dressing gown, with textural quilting details is the perfect piece to add to your loungewear collection.
The V shaped cross over neckline is framed by a pointed collar that joins the front of the bodice in lapels, accented by textural quilting stitches. The simple shoulder line is set off by tailored darts along each yoke and internally sewn shoulder pads along each shoulder and sleeve seam. The wonderful puffed sleeves are accented by pleats along the top of each sleeve, completing the detailed sleeve design, finished with turned-in details along each cuff. The cross-over bodice draws in internally along the waistline with matching satin ties, and fastens externally with a simple press stud fastening. The cinched in waistline is set off by a wide matching satin fabric belt which can be fastened to your desired width along the front of the dressing gown. The timeless cross over cut of the skirt, is set off by a bias cut, allowing for the satin to drape elegantly. Finished with a front pocket along the right hand side of the hipline, which is set off by quilting stitch details.
