We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, 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 items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Nowhere in today’s world will you find the kinds of rayon and silk fabrics that Yolande used in their most-beautiful slips and nightgowns! As in all slips and nightgowns made by Yolande, this one is “Hand Made”. The long side seams and the diagonal godet seams (near the hem) are all hand-finished with French seams. Even the bodice seams are finished with a hand-overcasting stitch. The deep armholes are bound with self-fabric, and the rolled hem is the tiniest that we’ve ever seen.
The Yolande label is stitched inside the back neckline, and the stated “38” (size) agrees with our own measurement. This gown is in excellent condition, with just two tiny, almost invisible water-spots. It has no other signs of previous wear. The gown is of true bridal quality, and would be a perfect as a gift at a bridal shower, or as an addition to a vintage lingerie collection.
Despite the larger size, our 5’ – 11” size 33 ‘Gloria’ delights in the beautiful fit and feel of this gown, and simply did not want to take it off! This “Sensuous Yolande” nightgown is as ready to wear as the day it was made, and is fit for a Star – YOU – the Star of your own Life!
