SOLD - VINTAGE LILY OF FRANCE LACE PEIGNOIR & NIGHTGOWN SET WITH BOWS IN QUEEN OF HEARTS RED WITH BEAUTIFUL CUT WORK LACE SLEEVES
An absolutely stunning peignoir & nightgown set by Rosa Puleo-Szule for Lily of France. Rosa Puleo-Szule was the top designer for vintage Lily of France years ago & everything she designed was spectacular.
The set is gorgeous in a shade called Queen of Hearts Red. The nylon fabric silky smooth & luxurious as it used to be in vintage days.
This very fancy vintage peignoir & nightgown has a huge lace inserts down the sides of the sleeves on the peignoir along with cut work between the lace. More lace around the bodice area. Two double ties at the waist for closure. Lots of fullness in the back of the skirt in the peignoir so it will float beautifully over the nightgown.
The nightgown is lovely with the huge lace inserts which comprise nearly the whole bodice & continues around to the back. The lace is crisp & fresh. Double straps with one tiny bow accent on the bodice. Silky smooth full skirt . The back has a very wide band of lace with a matching bow just like the one in front which is tacked to the straps in back.
Just an absolutely gorgeous vintage set by Lily of France in Queen of Hearts Red.

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.
