VINTAGE MUNSINGWEAR LACE & SATIN BOWS PEIGNOIR & NYLON TRICOT NIGHTGOWN SET IN CHOCOLATE MINT
Green is hard to find in peignoirs & gowns & this color is exceptionally pretty since it contrasts with the brown lace in a shade called Chocolate Mint.
The peignoir is a sheer layer of nylon with chocolate lace inserts on the bodice & back - 4 hooks & eyes on the front for closure. There are mint green satin bows on each shoulder. Sheer puffy sleeves with elastic on the ends.
The nightgown is out of the wonderful NylonTricot that was so popular way back then & it is no wonder as it is silky smooth with a heavier feel. Just lovely. The gown has the same matching chocolate lace front & back with mint green satin ribbon “bows” for shoulder straps. The lace on the set is crisp as though this set was not worn much if at all. Springy elastic at the waist with more very wide lace below with silky Nylon Tricot under that. Loops on the side of the gown for a satin ribbon if you wanted to add one.
Just a rare color in this vintage peignoir & nightgown set by Munsingwear in Chocolate Mint.

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.
