Vintage 1940s Silk Nightgown Pink Nightie w Embroidered Flowers Size M L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely quality silk nightgown that would date to the 1940s. It is gathered in small pleats at the shoulders and embroidered with appliqué flowers on the bodice. It has a crossover neckline with an inserted diamond shaped waist area and full skirt. The hemline has a scalloped edge. The nightie simply goes over the head as there are no other openings.
Label: No label
Color: Pale pink
Material: Pure silk
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium to large size, please note the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 15” across
Bust: 37”-38” around
Waist: 32” around
Hips: 54”, meant to fall loosely
Length: 55”, measured flat
Condition: Very good except for a small mark at the neckline (see last close-up photo) and a pinhead dot at the upper right skirt. Otherwise, there is no other wear, tear, stains or odors. This looks like it was worn very little and was very well cared for over the years.
This is a lovely quality silk nightgown - you just can’t buy silk like this anymore. Lovely to touch, beautiful to look at, this is a very pretty piece....
