VINTAGE ‘40s / ‘50s GLAMOROUS ORIGINAL PAULETTE - CHICAGO FLORAL SEERSUCKER BIAS-CUT GRAND SWEEP DRESSING GOWN IN BUTTERCUP
You will look as glamorous as a movie starlet in this beautiful ‘40s / ‘50s luxurious seersucker bias-cut grand sweep dressing gown peignoir adorned with tiny long stem pink roses and leaves in a beautiful spring and summer shade of Buttercup.
This is so gorgeous that I nearly did not want to sell this one and just keep it for myself since I will probably never see another one like it. It’s absolutely stunning on and so unique.
Beautiful seersucker is a breathable fabric that keeps one cool in warm weather. Vintage pinked seams. Inside ties. Matching belt with loops. A cute pocket on the side and cuffs on the sleeves. Shoulder pads for shaping which could be removed. The fabric is a light weight fabric that will just float behind one with a fabulous grand sweep. The huge circumference comes from the almost half circle of vintage bias cut fabric sewn into the back of the dressing gown near the hem. The circumference of the dressing gown is 168” or 14 feet of silky fabric in the bias-cut skirt.
The dressing gown is perfect for when you want to look beautiful when relaxing at home or very elegant for entertaining in the evening.

Size: No tag so go by the measurements for a good fit
Appx Measurements - The measurements are of the dressing gown - not your figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.

Shoulder to shoulder: 15-1/2
Fabric: Beautiful seersucker
Care: No tag
Condition: Very good – some tiny dark spots on the INSIDE of the collar which no one will see - at one time, I thought I saw some fading on the skirt but do not see it now so it could not be very noticeable but it could be there and I just don't see it.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
