GLAMOROUS VINTAGE IVORY JACQUARD BROCADE DRESSING GOWN
You will look like a 1940’s movie starlet in this vintage jacquard satin dressing gown in french ivory
The fabric is a heavy jacquard satin which reflects light beautifully & when moved from side to side, there is a glimmer from the satin - the color is a tone on tone with the shiny satin being a lighter ivory & the duller tone a different shade of ivory - lovely swirl design in the fabric which is fairly heavy & thick
There is a mandarin collar with self-covered satin buttons to the waist with a hook & eye - metal zipper under that on the skirt - matching self tie with thread loops on the side - angled rounded bottom pockets accented with a self-covered button
It is so hard to find these lovely dressing gowns nowadays as they are 60 - 80 years old - just beautiful & so glamorous
By: no tag
Size: size 16 but that is vintage sizing &
It is definitely not a size 16 so go
By the measurements
Bust: 41 - 42 stretched tight
Waist: 29 unstretched
Fabric: no tag but jacquard satin
Care: dry clean
Condition: very good - a few smaller age spots but most are on the lower back skirt which no one would notice, a triple pinhead hole on the front skirt close to the end of the zipper & if you put a tiny piece of ivory cloth behind it, it won‘t be noticed. I didn‘t notice it at all until i started closely examining the dressing gown. 1 pocket needs a couple of stitches at the top corner to bring It up to the “dot“ where it is supposed to be attached per the manufacturer. 1 part of a snap at the top of the bodice needs some stitches to secure. Small easy fixes a dry cleaning would be able to do if you didn't want to.
I would recommend a dry cleaning to freshen the dressing gown.
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.
