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 gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Although styled as a 1920s chemise, this garment may have been created for a showgirl in more recent years! The chemise is in excellent condition, with only the faint and tiniest soil spot in the upper half of the garment. (Hardly noticeable, and easy to clean out.)
The upper part of the chemise is amethyst-coloured silk chiffon, and it is lined with pink china silk. There is only one side seam – on the left side, and it has an underarm snap and hook & loop closure. The chemise features silk floss embroidered flowers within a field of diamond-shaped “windowpanes”. The lower skirt is comprised of a layer of nude lace over nude silk chiffon. The shoulder straps are overly long, and we tucked in about three inches for the pictures on ‘Gloria’.
The garment is in near-mint condition, with just 3 or 4 teeny-tiny holes in the lace skirt. There are no holes or stains anywhere in the silk fabric. We rarely see these old pieces in such wonderful condition, but this is clearly one of the best! The chemise is a one-of-a-kind display piece…. obviously custom-made using 1920s flapper-era silks and trims. This garment is destined to be worn by a Star…. the Outrageous Star that insists on only the best for her Boudoir Life!
