Antique 1910's Edwardian Negligee Nightgown | Ivory Tissue Silk with Ruffled Embroidered Tulle Lace | Size S, M
Antique 1910s Edwardian to early 1920s negligee nightgown made of a very pale semi-sheer ivory tissue silk. An open V cut neckline and bountiful lace ruffled collar. This gown is fitted at the waist with sewn-in elastic bands for an adjustable fit while accentuating the curves. A long, wide skirt falls to the ankle giving a heavenly sway and highlighted folds. Truly a special piece of lingerie.
Excellent: Hand washed and steamed, structurally sound, and able to be worn. There are a few tiny holes and a couple of obvious mends as pictured. Some spots from storage and age.
Elastic was first invented in 1820 and then made to use for clothing in the year 1900. It was still a rare thing to see until decades later. The elastic in this gown is still stretchy and is a thin cotton, but I can't confirm whether it is or is not original. Photo of elastic is included for reference.
