VINTAGE '50s FREDERICK'S OF HOLLYWOOD GRAND SWEEP DOUBLE NYLON PEIGNOIR ADORNED WITH A ROSE & SATIN BOWS IN PERIWINKLE
This lovely fluffy periwinkle sheer double nylon peignoir is by vintage Frederick's of Hollywood and adorned with satin bows and a beautiful fabric rose. The label is closest to the Frederick's 1950 label on the Vintage Fashion Guild site and my thanks to them.
The grand sweep peignoir set is perfect for a wedding night and honeymoon or just a special occasion. The top layer of nylon's hemline measures 156" or 13 feet and there is still another sheer layer under that!
There is a large gathered double nylon circle with a satin rosette in the center at the top of the peignoir. Two snaps for closure at the top of the peignoir. The top layer of sheer nylon is a periwinkle with an off white layer underneath.
The peignoir has feminine sheer double nylon sleeves with a lettuce leaf hem plus two satin bows on each sleeve. The peignoir is full and will float beautifully behind you when walking. There is a lettuce leaf hem for a very feminine look.
By: Frederick's of Hollywood
Size: Medium and should fit a Size Small as well but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust all the way around: 67
Fabric: 2 fluffy layers of sheer nylon
Condition Very good - 1 side of one of the snaps at the neckline has come unattached but it would be an easy fix with a few stitches to re-attach it. There are some picks in the nylon which nylon gets but the majority are in the back close to the seat area which is to be expected. Would never be seen at night.

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.
