Georgian 1800s French Fine Linen Nightshirt or Boudoir Gown. Completely all hand made from the homespun fabric to the linen lace. The seams are all hand sewn as are the pin tucked details to the back of the upper Bodice. The button is missing.
It's absolutely gorgeous, freshly laundered and lightly starched, ice white and crisp. The fabric is clear of any foxing, repairs or thinning and the overall beauty of the garment is fabulous. It was found in a linen trunk of other night attire. The garment is very very plain in construction, the arm and side seams have been reinforced and the shoulder seam has been double stitched. The fabric is quite fine and refined and this should be noted if the item is purchased by a lady for personal use.
