Robe-Banyan
« on: November 14, 2018, 10:19:29 AM »
Can anyone point to a draft for a robe/dressing gown more like those in use during the 18th/19th centuries? The ones I mean are those that are more fitted and incorporate a waist-seam. Such garments were based on the banyan. Here's a picture of one of those:



In the film Kind Hearts and Coronets (1947) Denis Price wears a similar garment, but with ridiculous peak lapels.

Its a more modern pattern, but Im sure you can adapt it for a robe:

Your yellow example is obviousely a pattern from at least 1850 ore even earlier. Im sure it will have a very crooked front shoulder, a shoulder seam shifted to the back and slimmer curvier sleeves than the modern pattern.

Maybe Jruley has an historical pattern?

Thanks gents. It seems I need to think about historical drafts. The link to the priest cassock is excellent, but difficult to read.

Btw, I ran into a firefox (and chrome) extension which overrides Photobucket's severed links for embedded photos and also allows you to download the images. If you try to download them now they don't show up in the image viewer; not mine anyway.

Chrome version
