Fancy Flapper Pyjama! 1920s 1-Piece Silk Lounging Pyjama~ Sz- Up to 36+ (#1714)
Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados! This is where sirens & stars, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, goddesses & glamour queens, ladies & lasses, and Über fashionistas shop for the vintage lingerie of their dreams.
Silver Screen Loungerie offers vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we occasionally find a “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by a previous or original owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring these pieces, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This is one of the more unusual lounging garments from the flapper 1920s… a rarely-seen one-piece silk lounging pyjama that is in excellent condition! This “Roaring Twenties” garment is listed here in the Lounging Pajamas and Flapper Frillies categories!
This one-piece pyjama has no label, as most of these unique pieces were custom-made. We’ve never seen two identical ‘pyjamas’ of this unique style! The garment looks like a “legged” nightgown, and the garment is straight-cut from shoulders to hems. There are attached, self-fabric waist ties, and one of them passes through a buttonhole opening near the right side. There are also two pairs of snaps for closures at the neckline and waistline.
The silk crepe fabric is as soft as it originally was, and it has no holes or stains that we could find.
This is a step-in style garment, with a very-low crotch and wide pajama legs. There are three rows of self-fabric ruffles trimming the bottom of each leg. The same ruffles also trim the neckline and armhole edges. Standing still, ‘Gloria’ almost looks like she is wearing a 55 inches-long silk nightgown… and not a “legged” pyjama!
