Dressing Jacket/Robe

From the seller:

 Snow white fine linen combing jacket dating to the third quarter 19thc.  Front button closure, pintucks along with embellished lace trimmed shoulder details, voluminous sleeves that end in charming lace trimmed bells, waist cincher pleat detail at small of back, with full lace trimmed skirt below, white hand feather stitch embroidery details thruout. Wonderful for design inspiration.  Wearable with care, has two small mended holes back of neck, with tenderness, couple of thin spots to the linen, underarms good, some fray to lace trimming neckline and weakness to top button hole. Chest measures 36", waist 30", length 30", sleeves 24".   

From Me:

I'd totally wear this beauty to work with a pair of loose trousers or a long flowing skirt. However, this was originally worn similar to a summer robe.
