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.
This kind of jacket was worn by all classes. For upper class representations you should use expensive fabrics.
