A white summer cotton nightgown from the later teens - 1920's era. The sleeveless gown features a pretty neck line of whitework Swiss embroidery, trimmed with a narrow white embroidery. Hemstitching finishes the decorative front. Three tucks over the shoulder plus 6 tucks at the center back further accents the gown. Gusset on either side seam, at the hem, gives the gown more movement. It is home sewn on a treadle machine, in a sturdy cotton. Quite wearable, cool and comfortable for warmer nights. Freshly laundered and ready to be enjoyed. The condition is very good.
Size measurements: 46" long from the neck line to the hem. 23" across arm hole to arm hole. 52" around the bust. Although no waist line, it would be about 58" if measuring around the natural waist.
