Women’s silk nightgown Monica with cap sleeves.in pure ivory silk.This soft 100% silk crepe de chine falls luxuriously down from a feminine scooped neckline. Louise’s skilled hand embroiderers have stitched a design of large roses and leaves all around the neckline. This hand embroidery around Monica’s neckline adds artistry and finesse to this refined style.

Monica is partial to finesse!

Louise’s ladies have stitched fine pin tucks about 1 cm apart down the front bodice to the waist. Louise has her favourite pin tuck ladies doing this. It calls for vertical perfection and not everyone can perform up to Louise’s exacting standards! It is harder to do on silk fabric.

Most importantly the pin tucks on silk gown Monica add extra fabric in the skirt for your nightwear comfort.

However, keep in mind that Monica’s pin tucks are very fine. They do not create as much silk fabric in the skirt as our silk nightgown Alexandra. She has wider pin tucks.

And also please note.

Silk nightgown Michelle with smocking and gathering under the bodice gives you the most fabric in the bodice and skirt. Therefore Michelle is particularly suitable for big busted ladies.

Silk nightgown Monica has a front opening with mother of pearl buttons and silk loops.

Her sleeves are cap.

Length is 115-120 cm 46 -48 inches. It comes to mid calf on most women.

All Louise Mitchell’s silk nightgowns are in  superior silk.

Most important, Louise recommends that you wash by hand or put  in a bag in the machine. She asks you to use only soft cleansers. Hang Monica on a coat hanger to drip dry. You do not need to iron her. Wrinkling is minimal, the sign of superior silk. Monica always thinks of herself as superior!





Material 100% silk
Fabric type woven

Hand or machine wash in a bag in cold/warm water in very soft powders or liquids. Hang up to drip dry. Our silk is good quality and does not wrinkle very much. Most clients do not iron. Your silk garment will last longer and look newer if you hand wash.
