The true no-fuss outfit for the 18th-century woman, a bedgown would have been worn in working situations like laundry, cooking, etc. Easily the most comfortable and loose-fitting option for the period, this lightweight wool keeps you cozy without overheating.
When it arrived I thought it was defective. I expected the bedgown to have finished seams, not raw, (somewhat uneven) edges on the lapels and the bottom of the sleeves.Once you turn up the sleeves and fold over the lapels you don't see this. The red wool is lovely, but I still feel disappointed. These issues certainly don't show up in your photos of this garment.
