This beautifully-made silk nightgown is one of the most attractive lingerie pieces that we’ve seen from the late 1920s! It is another of our fab silks, and it comes from Richard’s New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie! Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our unique boutiques!
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, like this one, 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.
This fine silk nightgown is made from a true silk satin unique to the 1920s and early 30s. The silk fabric still has its original crispness, and it looks and feels the same as the day when this nightgown was made! There is no makers label, as lingerie from this era was made “one-of-a-kind” for just one customer.
The gown features a shallow V neckline with small silk “flowerlets” on the sheer shoulder pieces. It is an exceptionally well-made gown with French seams at the sides. A wide silk ribbon serves as a belt to snug in to the desired waist size. The gown presents a more “slinky” appearance when the belt is not worn. A most unique feature is the asymmetrical lace hem… it is somewhat higher on the left side than the right.
There are no stains and no holes that we could find, and the seams are as strong as they originally were. On our 5’ – 10” Gloria model, the gown drapes 57 inches to her ankles on the right side. This wonderful nightgown is as ready to wear as the 1920s day when it was made, and is perfect for a Goddess – YOU – the Asymmetrical Goddess of your own Life!
