GLAMOROUS VINTAGE 1930's MOVIE STAR LOOK CLAIRE SANDRA BY LUCIE ANN MARABOU PEIGNOIR
The peignoir is in a light baby blue shade with a two rows of fluffy creamy ivory white marabou around neck, down the front and around the ends of the sleeves which move with the slightest breeze. It is fascinating to watch it. It continues around the curved lower front of the peignoir where it increases to 3 rows of marabou surrounding the hem of the peignoir for a very luxurious look. It was made with no closures on the front as this type of peignoir looks the most beautiful with the front left open and floating behind you. It is almost like a train when walking.
The peignoir is double nylon with a lining which hangs loose starting at the waist and continues down to the bottom of the peignoir. I have a feeling that maybe the former owner unattached the inside lining from the outside of the peignoir to let it hang free for some reason. But if I were wearing it, I would attach the lining to the outside fabric with big running stitches just so it cannot be seen or hang below the peignoir when one is wearing it. Not difficult to do or the cleaner can do this.
Just a gorgeous vintage marabou double nylon peignoir which will make you look like a 1930’s movie star. You just don’t see peignoirs like this anymore!
By: No mfg tag but it is by Lucie Ann as there is the her manufacturer's metallic gold woven tags showing the size and RN number which are the same as the ones on the other Lucie Ann items that I own and have sold.
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.
Size: Medium but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: 42 all the way around
Condition: The peignoir arms and back and part of the bodice have faded over time. I had planned to take off the marabou and tint the peignoir back to the original baby blue shade but I really do not have the time to do so so I am selling it as it is. Maybe someone might want to do that or just leave it as is as the color difference will not be as noticeable at night as it is during the day. The former owner from what I can tell reinforced the marabou strips with long stitches on the inside. There are some bare places on the front where the marabou is but if you push the two rows of marabou together and tack it from the underside, you can close that. That probably resulted from someone touching the marabou on the front a lot. You could also buy another strip of marabou and fill it in if that was important to you. Some of the marabou little strands will come off the peignoir when wearing it or moving it about but that is what happens with marabou especially vintage.
In the past, I have sold 3 of these marabou peignoirs very similar to this and two of them sold for $1350 and the other for $1400. They are very rare to find. They had a very simple inexpensive slip gown with them but it was the peignoir that was the fabulous and expensive item. Because of the imperfections especially the fading, I have reduced this one to a very low price.

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.
