Housecoats

I wish I had a photo of my Grandma James in her housecoat. It snapped up the front with pearly buttons, had two big pockets and a fancy bodice. These garments always fascinated me — a coat for the house! Not a dress, not a robe, not a coat but a very strange creature in a category and class of its own. They still make them. I bought one once at Penny’s just for old times sake but it did’t help bring anything back.
