SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD Lingerie by Blanche Vintage Black Peignoir Set Night gown 1930s 1940s Bias Cut Sheer Glamour Nightgown
This is a lovely peignoir and nightgown Hollywood siren type style from the 1930s or 1940s. It is jet black with lace accents.
The gown is figure hugging with lace covering the cup area and a little down the side. It has a low V neck with satin ribbon like straps. The back is low and straight across. The bias cut skirt flares slightly from a 26 inch waist to a 85 inch hem. The seams were pinked.
The peignoir or robe to this gown is long sleeved with lace on the shoulders and front in a yoke like manner. 5 inches of lace are on the shoulder area. 3 inches of matching lace accent the long sleeves. The sleeve are slightly gathered to create a mini puffed look. It is also gathered across the front yoke. Two snaps provide front closure. This is a beauty. A bit sheer, a bit daring, a bit of the past!!
Content: I don't know for sure, but believe it is a rayon or nylon blend. It might even be georgette, as it is not as silky as the usual rayon, satin slips and gowns from this era.
