This is one of the most beautiful nightgowns we’ve ever seen – let alone - owned, and it’s in a celery-green silk charmeuse fabric! The gown is in excellent condition, and is housed in our New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie. You will find it listed here in the Bridal Trousseau and Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of our 'Gloria' models to explore our special boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality possible. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, (like this one!), most of our items have been either gently or moderately worn by a previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
The inner construction is unusual, with French seams for the diagonal “bias” seams, (near the hem), and pinked seam allowances for the long side seams. Outside of three very-tiny pin-point spots, (in the side bodice), the gown has no stains and no holes.
The bodice is comprised of “windowpane” silk chiffon, with panels of delicate (cotton) lace enhancing the neckline and armhole edges. Little satin bows mark the beginning of the lace shoulder pieces.
On our 5’ – 11” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes almost to the floor. (64 inches) We are very excited about this gown… which is among the most beautiful of the 1930s. It is also one of the most beautiful gowns in the Year 2011!
