 Rose's Dressing Gown begins just beneath the breast of the empire waist. This type of waistline and skirt were very fashionable during 1912. The robe is open center front to the floor then flowing into a small train of lace.

The skirt has two main features, rows of lace and pin tucks. Lace edges the vertical center opening then carries through to the train. A row of lace in the knee region is horizontal to the robe's opening. This lace is of a different style than the vertical lace.

 

Each frontal panel highlights ten rows of pin tucks. These decorative features are tiny tucks in the fabric laying parallel to each other. They are similar to pleats but the folds are stitched.

The gown's pin tucks begin at the waistline and continue to the bottom. Pin tucks on ladies' nightwear as well as infant wear were very common during this fashion period.

The back view of the dressing gown is highlighted with an inset lace bow at mid to upper thigh. Following the bow is three graduating rows of lace. They are approximately eight to nine inches in height. The width of the lace is no larger than the bow.
