Beautiful antique nightgown! I believe it is linen but I have not confirmed with a burn test so it could possibly be a heavier cotton.
***BELT NOT INCLUDED***
Construction of sleeves and the way some of the sewing details were executed (like the finished seams throughout and cross stitched monogram) lead me to believe this is pre-1900, but it could also be from the early 1900s. One carved mother of pearl button at neck.
Very good wearable vintage condition. I do always recommend to hand wash and air dry flat if a garment can be washed without damage (this one can).
There are some scattered smaller holes (most noticeable one is located at back of left shoulder, see photo). Light stains on back of left arm and one faint spot on front, consult photos and please let me know if you need more visual clarification of flaws.
Works on many sizes and looks great belted as an eclectic summer dress! I am a 35” chest, 26” waist and 5’5” for reference.
Chest 22.5” pit to pit, 45” around
Sleeve Length 10.5”
