We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This beautiful set has actually never-before been worn, and is in the same mint condition as the 1950s day when it was made! There is no actual maker’s label, but the famous Neiman-Marcus store label appears on the waistband of the pant. There is a tiny and faint smudge alongside the (left-side) zipper, but we chose not to hand-launder the set. This set features the highest-quality silk crepe-de-chine fabric, with silk satin patch-pockets, wristbands, and the shoulder yoke on the jacket. The construction is without peer, and uses 1930s-style French seams throughout. Scalloped French lace trims every one of the silk satin ‘patches’, and all the exposed edges of the jacket. There are also tiny, blue silk-floss ‘flower-buds’ on the pockets and on the yoke.
This is truly the most “ornate” silk pajama set that anyone has ever seen, and we doubt that another set, like this one, can be found anywhere! A self-fabric belt is provided, but we like the appearance of the flared jacket without the belt. Worn with or without the belt, this set gives new meaning to the phrase… “Luxurious Lounging Pajama”!
This set is featured in Desire Smith’s now-available book on vintage lingerie… Irresistible, and is shown on page 93.
