Vintage 1940's Nightgown | Hand Stitched Warm Ivory Silk Charmeuse with Floral Appliqué & Spiderweb Lace | Size 34-36 Bust, S | OOAK
This vintage 1940s nightgown was completely hand-stitched and custom made for her original owner's wedding trousseau. Made of rich silk charmeuse in a warm shade of ivory that has a high luster and quality weight. Intricate hand-applied floral appliques atop of stunning spiderweb crochet lace across the bodice and scalloped hem, with French knots at the ruffled sleeves leaving no part of this gown untouched. Slinky in fit with a tailored derriere and sewn in ties to cinch the waist and an ankle-length hem. This slip dress is highly dramatic and incredibly feminine.
Closely resembles designs made by Chinese couturiere Jean Lindsay.
Excellent: Hand washed and steamed, with no holes or rips. A few marks from storage.
