Burnley & Trowbridge Powdering Gown Pattern - Hybrid


( / )


Powdering gowns fall under the somewhat ambiguous umbrella of gowns for undress. Possibly called a peignoir by the French, this garment was primarily used when dressing for the day as a temporary or protective layer to wear in place of, or over the day’s ensemble while dressing the hair. There appear to be distinctions between styles of powdering gowns worn by masculine and feminine individuals, in addition to the variety of styles of powdering gowns in general that might be chosen.

  • Based on extensive research, our Burnley & Trowbridge Powdering Gown Pattern allows you to create an unlined powdering gown suitable for feminine interpretations.
  • Suggested fabric is 3 1/4 yds of 55-60 inch fabric. 4 yards of narrower fabric.
