Stunning Yolande! 1940s NOS Rayon Crepe-De-Chine Bias Nightgown~ Sz 38 (#1613)
Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, sex-pots & pin-ups, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, starlets & harlots, and Über fashionistas shop for the vintage lingerie of their dreams.
Silver Screen Loungerie endeavors to offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we occasionally find a “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 these pieces, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Legendary designer, Yolande, created this bridal-quality nightgown which is in new-old stock (NOS) condition. As far as we can tell, this nightgown has never-before been worn. Along with other ‘Hand Made’ pieces by this designer, this Stunning Yolande nightgown is listed in both the “Nightgowns” and “Richard’s Collection” categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our unique boutiques!
As seen in every Yolande slip and nightgown, the label clearly states, “Hand Made”. Although this label states a (size) “36”, we measured a comfortable 38 inches around the bust. (The deep V necklines are very-forgiving as to size.) The “V” neckline is edged with appliqués on cotton net, and the French seams are finished by hand. The 9-3/4” deep armholes are bound with self-fabric, and (typically) Yolande uses an impossibly 1/8” narrow hem!
As shown on our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes 55 inches to just above her ankles. With normal wear and care, this beautiful nightgown should last the lifetime of the fortunate buyer!
