Vintage Embroidered Bed Jacket White Cotton Antique Trousseau  (LAC-277)

Quantity in Stock: 1     RuralFinds Item: LAC-277


Here is an vintage antique hand embroidered bed jacket.

This vintage antique bed jacket features skilled workmanship of hand embroidered work, lattice work & scallop cutwork.

The vintage antique bed jacket has open lattice lace embroidery work with a detailed hand made scallop embroidered edging along the bottom of the bed jacket. The detailed bottom scallop embroidered area is 2 1/2" deep around the bottom of the bed jacket.

The top of the vintage antique bed jacket and the back of the bed jacket has an embroidered flower and leaf design with cutwork embroidery eyelet.

The bed jacket sleeves also have hand embroidery and cutwork eyelet. The front placket has a pretty flower design.

The vintage antique bed jacket is pleated in both the front and the back. It has front buttonholes and buttons which are hidden by the placket.

Photos are showing the front and back of the bed jacket with its elaborate hand embroidery work.

Photo is showing the reverse side of the hand made embroidery work. See how some of the threads are 'crossing over' in various random ways and patterns. That is where the needlewoman has done 'anchoring' or 'knotting' the work when she is starting or finishing off at certain points in the work.

The cotton vintage antique bed jacket is a light weight cotton.

I would say that the vintage antique embroidered nightgown dress shift fit would be size 14-16 range (approx). It is loose fitting although I felt that the jacket was tight right under the armpit.
