Vintage Nightgown, Dress, With Embroidery and Side Pleats - Bust 91-96 cm
This beautiful nightgown is too nice to just wear to bed and makes a lovely summer dress. It is hand embroidered around the neckline in pink, blue and green. The V neckline and armholes are trimmed with tatted lace edging. It falls straight from the shoulders with no shaping around the bust. Two large inverted pleats add fullness at the hips and fall from the spoke stitching detail at the hips. Sewn with French seams and hem stitched border. A tie and carriers, as well as an added panel at the bottom of the armholes for modesty, appear to have been added later. Mid-calf length.
