VINTAGE LAROS RAYON BIAS-CUT NIGHTGOWN WITH 3-D FLOATING BUTTERFLIES ON SHOULDERS - ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE - EXTRA LONG 56-1/3
A very beautiful & unique vintage nightgown by laros with floating 3-d butterflies perched on the shoulders
The rayon has a cool & silky smooth feel to it - the embroidered butterflies & trim on the low scalloped v-cut front & back is a mottled gray, pink & blue combination and I would say they have faded considerably since the gown was made - they are not as deep of a blue color as shown but lighter but it would be very easy to dye them and make them a deep lavender or blue - shoulder straps have a wonderful split in them - lovely true bias-cut skirt with 2 large v bias inserts at the bottom of the skirt - vintage pinked seams
A rare vintage find in this floating butterfly nightgown by laros
Size: 36 but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: 36 - 40 appx - hard to measure because of the deep cut v in front & back
Hips: 41 but leave enough room for movement
Length: extra long 56-1/3
Care: no tag but probably hand wash or dry clean
Condition: Very good - butterflies need to be tacked with a few stitches to keep the wings in place as I had to put a bit of scotch tape under them while photographing - fading as mentioned above - easy fix or cleaners can do it quickly
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.
