Edwardian Dressing Gown

edwardian hair braid silk ribbon

My Edwardian 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. The dressing gown is closed with ties, and a button and loop. And under the peignoir I wear my Edwardian nightgown.

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.

For the photos I 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.
