By: Fashions by Marilyn - New York
Size: Size 16-1/2 but that is vintage sizing & is no where close to a modern day size 16-½ so go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: 42 - 43 all the way around but leave some room for movement
Waist: 31 & buttons could be moved over to make smaller
Shoulder to shoulder: 16
Fabric: No tag but it is a light seersuck-type textured fabris that drapes beautifully
Care: No tag - I would probably gently hand wash & drip dry but no washer or dryer
Condition: Very good - 1 of the large buttons on the front was moved over to make the waist larger - could be moved back to original place - 1 of the buttons on the INSIDE is broken in ½ behind the large button on the outside but it is not essential & could be replaced or just left - the buttons holes show some wear & stretching & could benefit from some stitching to close a bit more - none of these tiny imperfections affect the looks of the dressing gown or the wearability of it
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.
