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.
Tried it on. Haven't worn it yet, but I anticipate it will be wonderful to use at Newgate Prison in October. Yes, I reenact at a colonial prison in the fall at night. It's been cold enough to need wool. Looking forward to wearing it this spring.
