These muslin "Tea" gowns are available in two weights of cotton fabric. The lightweight version is softer, cooler, drapes nicely and folds down to a convenient size for travel. It's a good choice for sleeping. The regular weight is heavy enough that you can't see through it. With age it becomes softer. The opaqueness makes it a good choice for lounging and you can wear it around the house or in your yard. The yokes come in a variety of colours and patterns so you can choose the one that suits you best. The gowns arrive preshrunk. They're are elegantly long (See size chart) so let us know if you'd like yours shorter. We'll happily hem your gown to suit (at no extra charge) but if it's altered it can't be exchanged. Other features include inseam pockets and satin trim on the yoke. Because they're nearly 6' around from the chest down many people take a size smaller than they expect. They are gathered above the bustline so only consider your shoulder size when ordering. Don't worry if you get it wrong, you can always exchange it - unless it has been altered. These gowns are entirely cut and sewn in the comfort of Canadian homes. Check inside yours for the "Sewn by" tag then go to our "People Behind the Seams" page to see who sewed your cozy gown.
