Vintage 1920's - 1930's Nightgown | Hand Stitched Black Silk Chiffon with Floral Chantilly Lace | Size XS
This late 1920s to very early 1930s vintage nightgown is a very special, one of a kind piece. Completely hand stitched, with the upper bodice crafted entirely in floral chantilly lace. Bias cut with ribbon straps, and chiffon lining the bust to offer a subtle bit of modesty. A low drop waist, with long very sheer silk chiffon skirt providing an enormous sweep as it cascades toward the floor with a lace edged hem. Stunning lace leaf inserts adorn the front of the skirt, with a relatively high kick slit at the lower center to allow a decadent touch and ease of movement. This very sexy gown has side zip closure to allow you to carefully slip in and out of it without stressing the delicate lace. A true gem!
Excellent: Looks to have been very lightly and carefully worn and stored. I spotted no holes or rips in the lace or bust lining. I found a total of 5 holes directly above the hem, with 3 of them being pinholes and the other two smaller than a pencil eraser. Lace in excellent condition but I would not recommend sleeping in it due to its age and the delicate construction of it's style. Black ribbon is a replacement secured in sewn in loops.
