This vintage gothic-look robe looks as though one should be going up a curved stairway in a castle while carrying a flicking candle lighting the way - wondering what one is going to find when they reached the top of the stairs!

A vintage Vanity Fair no pile velour robe in Regal Purple  The velour is soft and the color is pretty in a purplish shade which reminds me of irises that we used to have in our garden when I was growing up.  Depending on the lighting, the robe varies in the shades of purple so it was difficult to get the exact shade.  But if you adore purple like I do, you will love the robe especially the gorgeous elegant shawl collar and top-gathered sleeves.

Modified empire look on the bodice with a small hook and eye above the zipper.  There is a 22-1/2" invisible zipper up the front for easy on and off.  There is one pockets in the side seam.  Snaps down the front which makes it so easy to put on and take off.  Large pleats coming down from the modified empire seam in front for a full beautiful skirt.  Slight curve on the lower back of the robe for interest.  There is some weight to this robe - not flimsy.

A beautiful color for the Fall and winter season.

Care Instructions

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.
