We at Silver Screen Loungerie, endeavor to offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
The rayon crepe-de-chine fabric of this nightgown is unbelievably slinky andsleek! The bias-cut style is perfect for this kind of lingerie fabric… witness how the gown seems to follow every one of Gloria’s curves! A crepe-de-chine fabric has the same finish – inside as well as the outside. You can wear this gown inside-out, and you won’t feel any difference!
With just minor fraying of the diagonal (“bias”) seam allowances, this nightgown is in very-good condition. We noted some very, very faint spots on the back skirt panel, (almost impossible to see), but the gown will be hand-laundered before it is sold.
This gown features embroidered butterflies which almost seem to be in flight! Their ‘wings’ are partially detached from the fabric below. The neckline and shoulder straps are made of corded rayon fabric in a golden colour.
This nightgown also bears the well-known Artemis label, with the “36” indicating a bust measurement of 36 inches. The bust cups are well-defined, and will likely accommodate up to a “D” cup bra size.
On our 5’ – 10” in-house ‘Gloria’ model, the gown falls 57 inches to above her ankles. The gown will be a joy to YOU, the lucky buyer, and the dreamy Star of your own Life!
