JP Ryan Manteau-de-lit or Bedgown Pattern
The Manteau-de-Lit or Bed-gown is an unfitted, T-shaped jacket with a shawl collar that continues into robings. It is knee-length, has seven-eighths length sleeves and underarm gussets. The bed-gown may be held closed using straight pins or an apron, for which directions are included. The bed-gown is fairly close fitting around the torso, and is reversible when lined. If you wish a looser fit, please make one size larger than you normally wear. Taken from M. Garsault's original drawings in "Description des Arts et Metlers" 1769. One size per pattern.
