Mad Men Gowns for the Modern Girl
Posted on July 11, 2012
Today we are feeling very Betty Draper in the Dream Lounge. We are staring down a group tricot gowns that are so old school that they are new again. Imagine a pajama and robe set as worn by Betty. That long gown. The equally long, feminine robe. All in a thin nylon fabrication known to many of our grandmothers and mothers as tricot. Given that Mad Men has brought ladylike tailoring back into vogue, we see the influence in pajamas and are feeling tricot as a retro fabric that may be worth revisiting asap.
