This 1920s nightgown is a romantic's dream. Subtle and sexy, with a very sheer powder pink silk chiffon fabric that has a natural stretch for a very comfortable wear. This slinky gown has the most elaborate tambour embroidery, with little lovebirds and flowers over tulle on the bodice and entire neckline. Little silk rosettes placed on the sides and at the point of the lace insert, with ribbons on the right side. Pin-tuck detail on the front of the gown, with pleated fabric at the hips give a feminine shape whilst holding on to the loose, draped fit of the 20s. The hem falls below the knee to about mid-calf, depending on height. This stunning, one of a kind lingerie piece was likely part of a bridal trousseau and was lovingly preserved. A very special and wearable piece for any vintage collector.
CONDITION - Excellent: Remarkable condition for its age! No stains, and I only found one tiny pinhole on the skirt. There are loops at the sides for a ribbon tie, and I assume there were ribbons at both sides of the bodice, but only the ribbons on the right side remain.
