Just a gorgeous vintage lacey double nylon peignoir & nightgown set by miss elaine in victorian peach
Designer: miss elaine
Size: no tag but measures like a medium or possibly a large
Bust: 53 all the way around
Bust: 42 - 48 stretched tight
Fabric: double nylon
Condition: good - there are several areas on the gown at the hemline where the nylon joins the lace that needs to be re-sewn - the biggest is a 6“ & there are a few smaller ones - easy job to just whip stitch back in place or the cleaners can do it for you - underneath layer on the peignoir has curled up somewhat & is shorter but a steaming would probably bring it back down to where it should be - i would just forget it - some small picks which are not noticable unless holding up to the light - price has been adjusted for the 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.
