Look fabulous while lounging!
In the late Victorian period, the banyan evolved into the Dressing Gown as a Gentleman's casual garment for wear around the house. Virtually unchanged from the 1850s to the 1940s, Dressing Gowns featured shawl collars and double-breasted closures, usually with decorative frogging.
Our pattern is based on an original tailor's draft from the period and helps you create a fabulous, elegant dressing gown!
