VINTAGE EYE FUL BY "THE FLAUMS" BLUE & METALLIC SILVER EMBROIDERED ROSES PEIGNOIR & LACE RUFFLED NIGHTGOWN
Eye ful made the most unique & gorgeous gowns & sets years ago & you just don’t find this kind of detailing in sets today or in other vintage manufacturers gowns & peignoirs
The peignoir is a silky semi-sheer fabric with a set-in double nylon yolk - it is adorned with heavily embroidered blue & metallic silver roses, buds & leaves - there is blue piping under the yolk travels around to the back as well as ties in the front for closure along with a tiny button - the silky fabric is gathered under the yolk for fullness in the peignoir - the puff sleeves are ruched with more blue piping - the back of the peignoir is really gorgeous as there is a large wide sheer nylon panel which flows elegantly from the top of the peignoir - it is embroidered with more blue & silver roses
Eye ful is known for their exquisite detailing & a lot of the sets & gowns that i have owned have bows or other fabulous detailing on the back which is a beautiful & unexpected touch - manufacturers just do not detail sets nowadays as they did the vintage ones as it is not cost effective for them & it is just not done
The silky smooth nylon nightgown was added by the former owner & it goes very nicely with the peignoir - the bodice of the gown is lavished with 3 rows of wide scalloped lace to form a “seashell” look to the bodice of the gown - sheer nylon fabric lines the bodice - more blue piping under the lace which travels around to the back - the lace is studded with tiny blue nylon roses scattered over the front & back - double looped blue skinny nylon straps - blue ties for around the waist - gorgeous large scalloped hem
Just an beautiful vintage peignoir & ruffled lace nightgown by eye ful adorned with blue & silver embroidered roses
By: eye ful by the “flaums“
Size: small & should fit a medium as well but go by the measurements
Bust: 43-1/2 all the way around & will fit larger if you leave the peignoir open which is the prettiest way to wear a peignoir set
Size: 34 but go by the measurements as there is some stretch to the nylon
Bust: 37 - 40 stretched tight but leave room for movement
Under the bust where the piping is: 30 - 32 stretched
Care: the tag says “hand wash in lux” in both pieces so you know how old they are as lux has been gone for years
Condition: very good - the elastic at the ends of the sleeves on the peignoir are stretched out but they could very easily be replaced - elastic loop for button on peignoir is stretched out but could be replaced or just left as is - easy fix
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.
