Vintage 1910's navy blue satin housecoat & dressing gown

After I posted images of her 1913 chiffon kimono, many of you asked for photographs of more pieces from my great-grandmother's Parisian trousseau. This is a handmade navy blue satin padded housecoat, of the type a woman would wear in the evenings at home with her husband. It's luxuriously comfortable, but very tiny. GGW was about a UK size 8, so it's never fitted me. Unfortunately.
