Fit for a goddess, this vintage early 1970s full sweep black chiffon nightgown that just flows with chiffon.. Coveted Intime of California label its truly fabulous.
The nightgown has a little scoop neckline front and back, the neckline and wide straps are edged in very tiny black satin rolled piping.. just a barely subtle accent. Tiny little gathers of both the black silky nylon then an over layer of sheer silky black chiffon start at the neckline and just flow to the floor.. creating a wonderful huge full sweep at the hemline.
On each side at the empire waist are little "buttonholes" in the gown through both layers give the gown so much versatility!
It comes with a black satin ribbon sash, and you can thread it through just the nylon layer, allowing the chiffon to float. For a completely different look, you can thread it though both layers and create a goddess style nightgown.
Make it even more different, by wearing the ribbon under the nylon, and over the chiffon just in front, so the back chiffon trails behind you.
One gown with different looks, all flowy for you to wear the style you choose, this gown always looks fabulous!!
The top chiffon layer has a stitched lettuce leaf hemline, so its curly feminine and fabulous on!
