This mid-century wrapper, robe, housecoat, house dress was originally sold at Woolworths dime-store chain, probably in the 1960’s, in Great Britain or Australia – though I wasn’t in any of those places when I found it. FUN!!! I love, love, love housecoats and this one’s story was intriguing to sort out.
In a long wrap style, it’s definitely not for wearing into town but is very flattering and comfy. The large size is somewhat forgiving due to the design, so I’ll enjoy it. The tiny wallpaper print is similar to some of the fabrics shown from the antique quilt I just found and showed a couple of days ago. However, this material is a cotton/poly blend, so made at a later time when easy-care fabrics were more common than pure cotton.
An interesting find, and one that I’ll wear a lot. Tomorrow we’ll move ahead in time by another 15 – 20 years to more fun finds that I’ll love wearing . . . . . . . . . . .
