GLAMOROUS VINTAGE YELLOW ROSES & LEAVES APPLIQUE TULLE SLIP
A lovely vintage slip with large sheer netting lace appliques yellow roses and leaves.
The tag has been removed but it could either be Vanity Fair or Van Raalte who many, many decades ago did a complete line of fruit and flowers on their lingerie so this could possibly be one of them.
The pale lemony nylon is very slippery and slightly thick feeling which makes for a wonderful slip. Sheer double pale lemon nylon surrounds the neckline and back with sheer tulle lace yellow roses and green leaves scattered over the bodice and the skirt and one on the lower back. The hemline is also sheer double nylon with appliques on it.
Beautiful under your contemporary or vintage fashions.
By: Tag has been removed
Size: No size tag so go by the measurements for a good fit
Approximate measurements :
Bust: 39 unstretched
Fabric: Smooth slippery nylon
Condition: Good - The former owner took up the hem which made a number of the pretty roses invisible so I took the stitching out and returned it to its original look. Because of there are some pinpricks from where the stitching is plus a pinprick hole at the hemline near the side seam but it is down at the hemline and would not be noticed. The back of the slip where the straps are has been reinforced with stitches which was poorly done and I would resew those just to make it neat. There is also a tiny 1/4" slit tear there on one side which could be pulled together at the same time. Pinhead hole at the waistline in back. Some small spots on the lower front which blended in pretty well. I am going to try to remove them with Borax but if they do not come out since the slip is a pale lemon they are not real visible unless examining it. Price has been adjusted for the imperfections.

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.
