My Edwardian dressing gown.
The dressing gown is inspired by the pretty lace peignoirs of the Edwardian era.
I used off-white striped cotton sateen fabric, cotton lace and some scraps of the pink fabric for the facings and ties.
The waist is slightly raised which is usual for the late Edwardian era.
Here’s a lace peignoir with V-neckline, a dressing gown with pink ribbon tie, another less lacy peignoir with V-neckline and pink ribbon, a dressing gown with 3/4-sleeves and a very pretty lace peignoir.
I’ve braided my hair as recommended in the Edwardian Night-Time Hair Routine of my Victorian And Edwardian Hair Care series. The hair is tied with a 100% silk ribbon.
Under the peignoir I’m wearing my Edwardian nightgown.
The dressing gown is closed with ties, and a button and loop.
The peignoir is quite long, it sweeps the floor. 😉

I need this type of dressing gown but I do not sew myself. Is there a way to get this type of dressing gown?
You can try to find a similar dressing gown (vintage or handmade) on etsy or ebay. Hope this helps! 🙂
