1950s Cream cape back layered nylon nightdress negligee - Medium Large
A stunning late 1950s early '60s nightgown/lounge dress in cream soft nylon over a slinky underlayer, almost regency style, from 'Sylphide' label. The front waist has threads of ruched shirring to draw it in, and the back is full, creating a wonderful cascade! The neck is flatteringly wide and trimmed with lace, and the front is finished with two stain bows.
Chest will comfortably fit 36 to 38", maybe up to 40 tighter
Waist 32" with some stretch
37" mid shoulder to hem
Presents well, I found a well done vertical mend to the skirt which is lost in the drape when worn, and there is a small hole below waistline as indicated- not noticeable on. Smattering of tiny surface nicks about the piece, I'm not sure if the waist would have been a little tighter and has slackened, but still lots of stretch and no 'crackling' as indicates perished elastic! This won't be a problem at all if you are close to the waist size above
