VINTAGE '50s / '60s VANITY FAIR SOPHISTICATED BLACK LACE PLEATED SLIP -HARD TO FIND LARGE SIZE
The bodice is composed of very tight pleats which have not spread out over the years and lace. The lace travels around to the back for interest. Satin straps with metal adjusters. Silky smooth nylon tricot in the slip. There is a beautiful 5-1/2" lace & tightly pleated hem for glamour.
Size: 38 S but go by the measurements
Bust 40 stretched tight
Hips 41 unstretched but leave room for movement
Length 41 & can be made shorter or longer with the adjustable straps
Fabric: Nylon Tricot
Condition: Very good - some very tiny imperfections - the mfg tag needs some stitches to securely attach it - the "V" on the bodice needs a few stitches to pull together as well as one corner of the lace strip on the bodice where it meets the side seam shown in photo - would only take less than a couple of minutes to fix - all easy fixes - some tiny picks but I did not see them until I held the slip up to the light

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.
