Roaring Twenties! NW Flapper Era Green Silk Crepe Night Dress, Bust- 44+ (#979)
Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, sex-pots & pin-ups, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, starlets & harlots, and Über fashionistas shop for the vintage lingerie of their dreams.
Silver Screen Loungerie offers vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we occasionally find a “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by a previous or original owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring these pieces, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This wonderful silk night dress was made in the mid-1920s, and it has never-yet been worn! The gown is housed in Richard’s fabulous collection, located in our New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Lingerie. This gown is listed in both the Nightgowns and Bridal Trousseau categories.

Although made more than 90 years ago, this night dress is in mint-perfect condition…. truly amazing condition for a delicate piece of vintage lingerie! The gown has not yet been laundered, as the full-length pleats are still very sharp.
Centered over the breastbone is a piece of golden lace artistry…. a gold silk-floss appliqué is placed in the middle of gold-coloured net, which in turn, is bordered by more golden lace trim. The same lace trim enhances the neckline and trims the deep armholes. A smaller version of this lace trims the shaped hemline.
We have more photos of this wonderful piece, and would be delighted to send them to you on your request. This irresistible flapper-era night dress is perfect for a Star… the Star of her own Boudoir!
