VINTAGE JENELLE OF CALIFORNIA DOUBLE NYLON NIGHTGOWN IN NEPTUNE - EXTRA LONG
Jenelle of California is known as one of the lingerie manufacturers in the '50s and '60s that made exquisite peignoirs and nightgown sets.
The nightgowns and peignoirs are all very luxurious with heavy sheer silky double nylon which floats behind you as you walk. Many of them are adorned with fabric roses or special detailing that you will not see in other vintage nightgowns.
This lovely vintage nightgown by Jenelle is in a aqua shade called Neptune. There is ecru lace on the bodice, around the armholes, the waist and more on the large lace and nylon hem. There is sheer nylon under the lace on the bodice. The contrasting colors are beautiful together. There is a nylon tie threaded through the lace under the bust line to adjust the fit. The straps have a lace rosette on them on both sides. Sheer nylon over silky opaque nylon which has almost a slight satiny finish to it. The hem line with the lace and aqua nylon decoration is just gorgeous.

Condition Very good vintage - it looks as there was at one time some lace on the straps that someone removed and left some thread remnants. I will not try to remove them but leave that for the next owner to do so. Picks in the sheer nylon which nylon gets and most are closer to the lace hem line and since they are over a layer of aqua nylon, they are difficult to see unless holding the sheer nylon up to the light like I did.

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.
