This is, by far, the largest size nightgown that we have ever seen in the rayon crepe-de-chine fabric! The gown is in excellent vintage condition, and is in a group of larger-sized gowns - all located in the New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie. This nightgown is listed in both the Plus-Size Pretties and Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our special boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie specialize in offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our pieces 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
This is, very truly, a gown for the most elegant woman, (Grande Dame), in a gown that measures over 52 inches around the bust. As the armholes are extra-deep, (12-1/2 inches), the gown could actually accommodate a size or two larger than 52. There are no stains or holes in this gown… just a small mend (expertly-done) at the bottom of the back V neckline.
There are no labels and/or size tags, as it was most likely a “one-of-a-kind” garment made by an expert seamstress. The gown is very-well made, and the pinked seams are just as strong as they originally were. Both the armholes and the front neckline are bound with blue rayon material, and there are embroidered floral figures in the bodice. Some ladder-like “drawn-work’ figures also enhance the bodice.
The fabric is a medium-weight rayon crepe-de-chine… meaning, that you could reverse this gown, and it would look and feel the same on the inside! On our 5’ – 11” ‘Gloria’ model! The gown is 56 inches long… falling to just above her ankles.
The gown will be a joy to the buyer, ready to wear, and fit for a Star – YOU – the Grande Dame of your own Life!
