GLAMOROUS VINTAGE '30s / '40s IVORY SATIN WITH ECRU LACE BIAS CUT NIGHTGOWN
A very glamorous vintage '30s / '40s smooth ivory satin and ecru lace bias cut nightgown.
Rich heavy satin that drapes beautifully lavished with strips of intricate delicate lace which extend below the bust line. The back of the gown mirrors the front except without the lace trim. More lace trim on the elongated armholes. There is an attached tie to tie in back for a good fit. Lovely true bias skirt with two triangular inserts for a glamorous look.
Absolutely gorgeous and so glamorous!
By: No tag
Size: No tag so go by the measurements
Bust: 40? Hard to measure because the front & back are cut down so far
Waist: 30 measured where the ties are located
Length: 56-1/2 but approximate as it is hard to measure a bias cut skirt
Fabric: No tag but satin & lace
Condition: Very good - Some of the lace around the armholes has pulled away from the satin as shown in one of photos. It would be very easy with a needle and thread to catch the lace with the needle and attach it back to the satin on the gown on both sides. A minute thin 1/8" bit of soiling towards the lower part of the skirt in front which is barely visible and I nearly didn't see it - tiny wrinkles which may come out with a professional cleaning - although the gown was steamed for the photos, it could use a professional pressing when you have it dry cleaned which I always recommend with all vintage clothes when you purchase them.

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.
