Boy's Wrapper

Description

A young boy's wrapper made from roller printed cotton in a floral pattern of sprigs and bunches of flowers with red branches on a red and brown picotage ground. The gown is made like an adult banyan, with a squared neck and cartridge pleats set into it to form a soft, shawl collar. It is fully lined in a cotton printed in a small allover pattern of flowers.
