In setting out to create our perfect nightgown, we stumbled into our new favorite evening look, perfect for entertaining at home in ease! Featuring faux tie neckline and long, voluminous sleeves. Belt not included — we suggest pairing with a sparkly fabric belt and heels, or dressing Rupa down with a wide leather belt. 


True to size. Model wears XS/S.


    50% satin, 50% cotton. We use a cotton called muslin — a fabric of plain weave, which is one of the three most fundamental types of manual textile weaves. While muslin is strong and hard-wearing, it was once a luxury fabric because of its softness and ease when wearing. It is commonly believed that the cloth originated in the Iraqi city of Mosul, it is now understood that the cloth likely originated in ancient India. Machine wash gentle and hang dry, or dry clean.
