A beautiful vintage double nylon lacey peignoir & nightgown set by intime in a baby blue shade called dreamland blue
Intime of california along with a few other lingerie manufacturers produced exquisite sets with fabulous workmanship & detailing that people have loved world over
The peignoir & nightgown are dripping with vintage very soft white floral lace - the peignoir is composed of 2 layers of sheer silky nylon - the lace on the peignoir is gathered around the neckline with satin piping in between the lace - there are long satin ties to tie in a bow in front with 2 snaps for closure underneath - the double nylon sleeves have more lace with a flounce adorned with satin ribbon & a bow - there is a 14-¼” lace hem on the peignoir along with more satin piping for a gorgeous & feminine look
The matching double nylon nightgown has a layer of sheer nylon over the slinky nylon - miniature lace trim around the neckline with wider lace & satin piping on the shoulder straps - there is a small bow on each strap - white lace frosts the hemline
Just a lovely vintage peignoir & nightgown set by intime in dreamland blue
By intime of california
Size large & should fit other sizes as well as there is a lot of room in these sets as they were very generous with the double nylon
Bust all the way around 58-1/2
Bust 47 - 54 stretched tight
Armhole 23 & can be made large by splitting open the side seam under the arm & re-sewing it - no one would notice as your arm will be over it
Fabric double nylon
Care tag says machine wash & dry but i would definitely hand wash drip dry &
Do not put in the washer or dryer as they ruin vintage double nylon sets & definitely do not use an iron on these vintage sets
I use a steamer but an iron would ruin them
Condition - the peignoir is in very good condition with only a bit of light yellowing on the lace on the back collar - an oxy soak might possibly take that out & i think i saw 1 tiny pick - the nightgown was worn a lot by the former owner & has some imperfections which are as follows: the miniature lace around the neckline needs a good pressing to make it lie flat - the armholes need to be turned under & hemmed which will only take a few minutes or the cleaners can do it - a number of picks in the skirt which are not noticeable unless holding up to the light & closely examining it - the lining under the sheer nylon which no one can see has been altered, maybe some cut off but it still comes down to the lace on the sheer layer & re-hemmed - 1 pin head hole & a pinprick one on the skirt - he price has been adjusted for these small imperfections
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.
