This 1940's pajama set is a rare and very special set that is perfect for any vintage collection. Made entirely of gold rayon satin, consisting of a robe, top, and palazzo pants. The robe would compliment a variety of boudoir pieces, with darted, lightly lined gathered shoulders and wide trumpet style sleeves that fall to the wrists. Cut on the bias with ruched detail at the waist to provide shape, a smooth tailored back and long a-line skirt that falls to about mid-calf, showing the gorgeous pants underneath. There is an inner tie at the waist to keep the robe from shifting, and a long outer sash for closure.
The pajama set is perfectly flattering, with a slightly cropped top that has lovely puffed sleeves and a slightly fitted waist, while the bust area is comfortable loose to give a dramatic yet clean and chic look. Button closure with a few hidden button-snaps at the waist and at the neck to ensure everything stays in place.
The palazzo pants have a very high satin banded waist and long, dramatically wide legs that sweep gracefully while you walk. Very slenderizing due to their draped fit and loose hip. These darlings are tailored over the derriere to still show curve and accentuate your best. Button-snap closure at the left hip allows for ease of wear while still giving a seamless front and back look.
A very beautiful, very regal set!
CONDITION - Excellent: no holes or rips. The color is just as vibrant as shown in the pictures! The only flaw I could find was a little bit of red speckling on the top near the collar, which I was able to lighten but not remove. Hardly noticeable, and does not at all distract from the sets beauty.
Fun Fact: This set was designed by Maurice Rothschild, who was rumored to design hats for Al Capone.
