BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE VANITY FAIR APPLIQUES, LACE & TULLE NYLON TRICOT NIGHTGOWN IN LEMON CHIFFON
You do not see these stunning vintage bridal trousseau nightgowns much any more and especially one lavished with so much lace, tulle and appliques. This nightgown is by Vanity Fair who was known for their beautiful peignoirs and nightgowns and was a superb manufacturer of fine lingerie. The shade of the nightgown is Lemon Chiffon.
The nightgown has the most exquisite lace on the bodice which lined is with silky smooth Nylon Tricot lining. In addition to that, it has a layer of sheer pleated tulle over the double nylon bodice. The sheer tulle over the cups of the nightgown form wide straps which travel around to the top of the shoulder where there is a beautiful lace applique.
There is a "V" shaped band of lace under the bust line with a silky nylon insert below at the waist and both continue around to the back. I love the points that come down from the insert with gathers below them to form a full skirt. The back is just as lovely with the double nylon sheer straps and a wide band of lace below that. Beautiful double nylon sheer tulle frosts the hemline.
An absolutely gorgeous feminine bridal or special occasion nightgown by Vanity Fair in Lemon Chiffon.

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.
