The train of Rose's Dressing Gown is one of the most stunning traits of this gown. The lace train delicately encircles the gown.

Ms. Angela Thompson, lace expert was asked to comment on the train's lace. The following is her observation:

"The train edge at the back of the skirt is most probably Brussels Application. Individual pieces of Brussels bobbin-lace

were appliqued to a machine made tulle net. However, the piece to the above that comes down is different. It could be a hand-run net, with little spiders in the flower centres, it could be machine. The reason for thinking this is that it is an all-over pattern that is not easy to make in bobbin lace. In the central region of the close -up, in this area are a series of lace medallion insertions, oval in shape. These could be hand bobbin lace of the Brussels or Flanders type."
