Are you seriously looking for information on bedgowns?  To be honest, that term is a bit outdated.  Possibly, you are as well.

Bedgowns of lightweight printed cotton fabric were fashionable at-home morning wear in the 18th century.

A bedgown (sometimes bedjacket or shortgown) is an article of women's clothing for the upper body, usually thigh-length and wrapping or tying in front.

They were not necessarily worn to bed.

Related to bedgown: bed jacket, petticoat, nightgown.

Over time, bedgowns (also called in this context shortgowns) became the staple upper garment of British and American female working-class street wear from the 18th to early 19th centuries, worn over petticoats and often topped with an apron. Made of sturdy cotton, linen, wool or linsey-woolsey, these bedgowns were simply cut to a T-shaped pattern, and were worn overlapped in front or with the front skirts cutaway.  The term "bed gown" to describe this item of clothing was used as late as 1876.
