1940s Vintage - Vintage Lingerie - Vintage Nightgown - Pink Floral Full length pale pink floral print rayon nightgown with cotton lace trim from the 1940s. Gathered from the bound scoop neckline. Puff sleeves trimmed with lace are not elasticised, perhaps a sign that it was made during World War 11 when rubber for elastic was scarce. Please make sure to check the sleeve circumference measurement. Two drawstring ties underneath the bust run through eyelet holes in the lace. Old style softest rayon fabric. No tags, custom made.
Hand wash and cool iron.
