*VINTAGE '70s CLARICE BY BARBIZON LACE & SATIN DE LYS NIGHTGOWN IN CHAMPAGNE BUBBLES
A vintage Clarice by Barbizon lace & Satin De Lyse Nightgown in Champagne Bubbles.
Intricate floral lace bodice & back with sheer champagne nylon under cups & part of the sides of the bodice - deeper ivory than in the photos with some yellow in it - lovely shade - triple satin straps which become braided at the top of the shoulder & then split into 3 straps in the back - very unique & pretty - sheer lace back
The fabric is luxurious in a satiny smooth fabric called satin de lys - elegantly draped bias skirt with more champagne floral lace trim on the hemline - vintage pinked seams in the gown
By: barbizon - clarice - satin de lys
Size: vintage size 16 but go by the measurements as sizing has changed over the years & this is definitely not a size 16 - it is more like a medium or a small large size
Bust: 39 - 42 stretched tight but i would not stretch to the maximum
Waist: 35 unstretched
Hips: 43 unstretched but leave several inches for movement as it needs to drape properly
Fabric: satin de lys
Care: no tag so ii would hand wash drip dry
Condition: some small imperfections that satin gets in the fabric but no one would notice unless closely examining the gown which no one is going to do & definitely would not be seen at night - a pinhead of black on the skirt in back which will probably come out in the wash - a 9“ diagonal run on the back of the skirt below the hip area, straps need to be tacked to the lace in back
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.
