Mr March's dressing gown

detail of fabric
So the Character Mr. March is supposed to wear a dressing robe/gown in a few scenes as he is recovering.  I never knew how hard it would be to find a pattern like that.  I dressing robe is sort of like  a bath robe except youare usually fully dressed under it and it is more formal.    it is meant to be used when relaxing or getting ready for the day so you do not get hair gel ( oils, mascar in those days) on your clothes.  usually made of rich fabrics and velvets.  The costuming said it needed to look old and worn.  Because people do not wear this style of robe any more I had to improvise and modern bathrobes had a total wrong look.  I happen to find a kimono costume pattern thrift shopping (.50 cents)that had not been cut yet.  I figured with minor tweaking it would do ok.

I found a burgundy table cloth around Christmas time thrift shopping ($5.00) that I got just for this purpose not this item but for costumes in general.  It has age and wear already but is still a strong rich looking fabric.  I added brand new black velvet to the trim and belt.   I crocheted belt stays to keep the belt with the costume.  i tried to stay with dark rich colors in the hopes of keeping it manly for the era I hope it worked I think it did.  Not that my husband would wear this in this day and age.
