It is NOT a wrapper, but a gown. It's made of brown silk plaid trimmed with rich brown and black silk braid. The silk is made up of different weaves, such as taffeta and satin, etc. The dress is lined with light brown cotton.
It has an inner bodice which fastens at center front with hook/eyes. I particuarly admire the guaging at the back waist. The adress also has a pocket AND a watch pocket! It's great for display, inspiration and study.Belt, chemisette, petticoat, undersleeves and pin not included. There is some loose stitching on some of the seams. The left front of the bodice has two repairs and tiny snaps have been added at the waist. The chest is about 38. The waist is about 28.
The front length is about 41 inches. Please note: Measurements are approximate and should be taken as maximum.
