The wrapper was a dressing gown or morning dress, suitable for receiving early morning visitors. It should not be confused with a wrap, which was worn as outerwear: a shawl, cape, or coat.

This pattern is marked with options to be worn without a bustle, and over a medium-sized bustle or the more extreme 1884-1887 bustle.

It includes 6 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 4 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope.

All sizes Petite – X-large are included.
