By: Don Sayres for Wellmore
Size: 12 - would probably fit other sizes as well but go by the measurements
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: 39 - 40 stretched a bit
Shoulder to shoulder: 16-3/4 - 17
Waist: 35 - 36 with lots of stretch since it is a knit
Hips: 36 unstretched but leave room for movement
Length: 39 - 39-1/2
Fabric: Rayon & wool just like the St. John Santana knit
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - very very light whitish mark on the back lower left shoulder or lightened. I could not tell if someone has brushed against it with powder or it was just lightened. It would probably come out with a cleaning or just leave it as it is not that noticeable - price has been reduced greatly because of any 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.
