VINTAGE BRIDAL WEDDING NIGHT VAL MODE PEIGNOIR & NIGHTGOWN SET ADORNED WITH LACE APPLIQUES - NEW WITH TAG
A beautiful vintage nylon peignoir and nightgown set by Val Mode perfect for a bridal trousseau or a special occasion - NEW OLD STOCK WITH TAG.
The tag from the department store shows a price of $70. and this was before department stores began using the SKU tags that they use today. Everything used to be handwritten and I remember that well from the '50s and '60s when purchasing an item from a department store. Some stores started using SKU numbers on tags in the mid-'70s.
Using an inflation calculator, an item in 1980 that cost $70 would today in 2017 cost $220.34. This set could have been from the '70s but I did the calculation from 1980.
Beautiful white sheer one layer nylon peignoir with a satin bodice adorned with lace appliques on the lapels. Double nylon puff sleeves banded with satin. Hook and eye for closure in front with elastic at the waist for a good fit. Included is the original white satin ribbon tie for the peignoirwhich I forgot to photograph with the set.
The matching nightgown is in a single layer of slinky creamy feeling trimmed with identical lace appliques as the peignoir. A bit of elastic at the waist. Skinny spaghetti straps and a miniature scalloped hem to finish the skirt.
Very ethereal looking and perfect for a bridal trousseau or other special occasion when you want to look gorgeous and feminine.

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.
