Truly beautiful vintage 50s chiffon nightgown with the most AMAZING fluttery rhinestone studded bedjacket. Like something out of an old Hollywood movie!
Not a matched set, they were paired together on a hanger at a Dallas Estate, match perfectly and are the same size and era. I almost split the set into two listings because of the labels, but just couldn't do it.. they are too beautiful together! Also.. the gown has a few minor issues. Wearable, but not perfect so i have decided to "throw it in" with the bedjacket at no charge.
You are only paying for the beautiful rhinestone bed jacket, which would be fabulous over a little black dress.. a black nightgown, white, pink, even a cute little sun dress. The fun of vintage is 'thinking outside the box' and this little jacket is worth a bit of thinking.
of course you can wear it with the included nightgown:
Both a deep carnation pink, the nightgown has double rolled nylon straps, that meet the gown on the right with sassy double bows. The entire neckline is ruched.. starting with two tiny rows, then two larger rows. A pretty, yet simple design.
The nightgown is two layers of chiffon. A soft, pastel light pink inside, and the darker pink on the outside. The ruching from the neckline allows the extra fabric to create the bust, then gathered at a wide panel from under the bust to the natural waistline. Skirt to the nightgown is full and sweet with the double layers and is a knee or ballerina length.
The bedjacket is simply amazing. Round neckline is edged in rolled tulle which becomes a tie to close the jacket at the neck in front in a pretty bow.
The yoke in front and back is all tulle and ends in a rounded shape at the bottom..But.. On the right side of the yoke are the most wonderful rhinestones, prong set! There are three little flowers created of the rhinestones, then four little ones scattered.
The edge of the yoke is accented with a double layer of the delicate tulle, creating a wide beautiful ruffle that also caps the top of your arms like a flutter sleeve.
The back and bodice of the bedjacket is ultra soft carnation pink nylon, with a second tie to close it, form fitted at the bottom.
Just truly amazing and glamorous!

As mentioned there is no charge for the gown. If you decide you do not want it, just let me know. It is wearable. The ruching stitching is missing on the entire left side of the bodice. Ruching still secure, in fact I didn't even notice it until measuring. but know its not perfect. There are also numerous picks to the top layer of chiffon in the skirt, also on the left side particularly. Not terribly noticeable, but again, know this gown is beautiful but imperfect and no charge.ST-307
