This Resto-Vival sewing pattern is from the late 1920s and was taken from a period original pattern, with the addition of written text tips for fitting and sewing.

This movie-star-worthy robe dates from the late 1920’s and is perfect for your practical and fanciful needs! This looks stunning and sleek when made in beautiful silks, and the cut is especially suited to large prints because most of the pieces are large. If something fluffy and feminine is more to your taste, this negligee robe looks amazing with rows of beautiful ruffles. Its especially suited to organza and organdy, but also can be made of silk chiffon with ruffles made of lace. When made of a nice cotton lawn or batiste it’s practical and elegant for summer wear. The robe can be made with either a straight front or a curved front hem. Collar and sleeve lining can be cut of contrast fabric.


This pattern is a multi-sized pattern and includes sizes 32″-50″ bust in one packet, in sizes Small-XXL. See pictures for size chart.

This original period pattern has NOT been tested for fit or construction. Make a mock up first to test the pattern for your body.

About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
