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 the items – as much as possible – to their original beauty.
As indicated by the Colleen Lingerie label, the “Quality Rayon” fabric was made by “Bur-Mil” – Burlington Mills. This is a heavier weight crepe-de-chine rayon… just perfect for the fabulous swish and swirl of the 120-inch skirt! The skirt also makes a noisy “rustle” sound when in movement around the legs and ankles!
The gown is tagged as a “38”, but we think a 36-plus is a more accurate indication of the bust measurement – in inches.
