1940s Pink silk crepe de chine bias cut nightgown - Small
A stunning 1940s nightie in shell pink gorgeous quality silk crepe de chine, I cannot stress enough how soft, luxurious, and tactile this fabric is! Bias cut so drapes beautifully, with entirely hand-embroidered scalloped edges, and pleating/gathers beneath the bust. Bust billows out slightly, and the piece slips over the head with no fastenings.
Chest relaxed 38”, can be worn fitted here or loose!
Waist relaxed 26”, going to 28-9 as bias cut
Hip 34” to 38
41” mid shoulder to hem with relaxed measurements, will shorten a little if hip etc pulled out more
Excellent condition, very very faint small area of pale grey towards the hem which is hardly visible and lost when worn! A few small stitches missing every so often along the embroidered edge
