*VINTAGE SWISSETTE ORIGNAL EYELET PEIGNOIR & DOUBLE NYLON NIGHTGOWN SET IN LEMON MERINGUE
A lovely eyelet-type vintage peignoir and nightgown set by Swissette Originals in a shade called Lemon Meringue.
The peignoir is out of a crisp pale lemon and white eyelet-type fabric with sheer ruffles down the front, around the neck and the hemline. There is a wider ruffle on the ends of the sleeves along with tiny bows. Nylon ties for closure.
The matching nightgown is double nylon with the top layer sheer and the lining slinky nylon. There is a another ruffle around the neckline with a double bow. Eyelet like inserts on both sides of the gown embellished with bows for a very feminine look. Miniature ruffle around the hemline. There is a lot of detail on this set that is not often seen in peignoir sets today.
Very unique and beautiful vintage peignoir and nightgown set by Swissette Original in Lemon Meringue.
By: Swissette Original
Size: Medium but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: all the way around 44-1/4
Fabric: No tag
Bust: 42 - 45 stretched tight
Under bust: 26 - 29 stretched tight
Fabric: Double Nylon
Care: Hand wash & dry drip as with any other vintage peignoir set
Condition: Very good - with the exception of a black mark (may be ink) on the lower front of the peignoir which I don’t think will come off. (Shown in the next to the last photo) I was thinking a bleach pen might work since the fabric is a light color & down so far but was hesitant to try it. Fortunately, it is at the bottom and the ruffle sort of curls back so it is not that noticeable. Price has been reduced for this. Some picks in the gown that nylon gets but would not be noticeable at night.

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.
