* VINTAGE 1940S / 1950S ROYAL MAID JACQUARD BROCADE QUILTED DRESSING GOWN/ROBE IN GOLD DUST
A vintage 1940s / 1950s jacquard brocade quilted dressing gown/robe in Gold Dust.
A lovely soft gold color in jacquard brocade. It has a beautiful sheen in the floral and leaf design which give off an embroidered effect. Love the shirring at the shoulder area with the set in rounded fabric above. The robe has an attached tie belt that will never get lost. Beautiful large uniquely cut pocket on the front. A bit of puff at the top of the sleeves makes it so feminine. Lined with light taffeta. Beautifully made with no exposed seams to rub against the skin. Has inside ties.
A wonderful dressing gown to put on in the morning or when one gets home from work to relax for the evening!

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.
