RC926 - 1880s-1940s Dressing Gown or Lounging Robe Pattern by Reconstructing History
In the late Victorian period, the banyan evolved into the Dressing Gown as a Gentleman’s casual garment for wear around the house. Virtually unchanged from the 1850s to the 1940s, Dressing Gowns featured shawl collars and double-breasted closures, usually with decorative frogging.
This pattern is based on an original tailor’s draft from the period and fits chests 34″-54″ with instructions for making the pattern fit larger sizes. All sizes are included in one envelope. Embellishment suggestions, historical notes and period tailoring techniques are also included.
