A beautiful vintage bridal trousseau lacey peignoir & nightgown set by Donna Richard for Gilligan & O’Malley in Bridal Veil.
The color is in a bridal white with a lovely silvery sheen to it perfect for a trousseau. The lovely bed jacket peignoir has a collar with a satin ribbon running through the ruffle at the top. The bias-cut collar falls into a cascading jabot at the neck. The lace is sheer & beautiful. There is a bit of elastic at the ends of the sleeves with a lace-trimmed flounce.
The nightgown is just as beautiful with the same type of scalloped lace trim at the top of the bodice. There is ruching between the cups. Tiny lace spaghetti straps which are so feminine. More lace trim in the back with some elastic at the back waist for a good fit. Bias-cut skirt.

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.
