*FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - GORGEOUS VINTAGE VICTORIAN LOOK CHRISTIAN DIOR LACE PEIGNOIR & NIGHTGOWN SET DRIPPING WITH VINTAGE LACE, SATIN RIBBONS & EMBROIDERY IN DUSTING POWDER - EXTRA LONG
An absolutely stunning vintage Victorian look peignoir & nightgown set by Christian Dior in pale pink with a touch of mauve in a shade called Dusting Powder.
Lavished profusely with satin ribbons, embroidery & lace. Satin ribbon lace through embroidered lace ending with a bow & tiny ribbon rosette on both sides of the bodice of the peignoir. Lots of appliqued lace with wide 3-½ gathered lace flounces on the bodice which travel over the shoulders & surround a large collar. Huge lace trimmed collar in back. Shoulder pads which could be removed.
Loops with matching belt. Two pockets with inside ties. The gown is just as beautiful as the peignoir with the same embroidery, satin ribbons & rosette. Hem is lace trimmed. Ties on sides for a good fit.
It is extremely difficult to find a set like this nowadays with all of this detail & fabulous lace & embroidery. Just gorgeous.
Designer: Christian Dior
Size: No tag but I wear size 8 - 10 & it fit me
Bust: all the way around 51-1/4
Bust: Hard to measure because the back is lower but appx 36 - 38 stretched tight - under bust where the lace is 30 - 33
Fabric: Imported poly
Condition: Very good - a mend where there was a break in the lace on the lace flounce on the shoulder which no one would ever notice - a yellowy spot on the lower front close to the hem on the peignoir which is so far down that no one could see it - on the gown on the right back close closer to the seat & side seam, there is a dark shadow like mark 12“ long & about 2“ wide which i did not see until i looked at it under fluorescent light so no one would notice it at night although it is there as well as some fairly large spots on the back of the peignoir - very light store mark on inside of peignoir which cannot be seen from the outside & may come out with a wash - although this sounds like a lot of imperfections most blend in fairly well
Care: Hand washable
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.
