We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been either gently or moderately worn by a previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Nowhere in today’s world will you find the kinds of rayon and silk fabrics that Yolande used in their most-beautiful slips and nightgowns! As in all slips and nightgowns made by Yolande, this one is “Hand Made”. The long side seams and the diagonal godet seams (near the hem) are all hand-finished with French seams. Even the bodice seams are finished with an overcasting stitch by hand. The ballet figures are comprised of tiny “tubes” of bias self-fabric, which are then twisted into unbelievably complex shapes. The ballet skirts have sheer panels made of criss-crossing and interlocking silk threads. Amazing!
This gown is in excellent condition, with no signs of wear and tear. The picture of the reclining figure also shows the Yolande label in pristine condition. Despite the larger size, our 5’ – 11” size 33 ‘Gloria’ delights in the beautiful fit and feel of this gown, and simply did not want to take it off! This “Dancing Yolande” nightgown is as ready to wear as the day it was made, and is fit for a Star – YOU – the Prima Ballerina of your own Life!
