Antique 1920's Step In Chemise | Pale Dusty Blue Silk with Floral Embroidery & Ruffles | Size XS, S | New Old Stock
This antique 1920s step in chemise was never worn, new old stock. Made of pale dusty blue silk, with ever-so-lovely rows of little embroidered flowers at the side of the chest. Bountiful ruffled adorn the lower part of the skirt with embroidery hidden at the hip and in the skirt offering an additional touch of sweetness. A low straight neck with a hidden inner ribbon drawstring to cinch for a perfect fit, with silk ribbon straps and a classic loose fit to flatter the figure in a way that only 20's lingerie can do. This little teddy has an attached ribbon bow right above the derriere that can be untied and used as a low hip tie if you so choose, with an attached ribbon crotch making it a true step-in style. Absolutely adorable!
Excellent: never worn without holes or rips. There is a faint surface 'dust' mark under the embroidery on the front chest that I believe will lift after soaking.
*Has not been washed in an effort to preserve the integrity of it being new old stock by not ruining the stiff paper tag. That said, this garment has been in storage for nearly 100 years and will need to be washed if you intend to wear, also please consider that there is a bit of 'dinge' to it that will lift after a proper soak.
Please send me a message if you would like for me to hand wash and steam prior to shipping and I will happily do so!
