Finest 40s - 50s Silk Chiffon Negligee - Charmeuse, Lace - Hnd Made

What a sublime vintage Negligee, from the 1940's or 1950's. Entirely hand made as to be expected from the best lingerie. You will feel draped in luxury in this gorgeous negligee or nightgown.

The body is ivory silk chiffon, the bodice and sash is ivory silk charmeuse. Hand applique lingerie lace on bodice. We show close-ups of the hand work...very tiny stitches, so small it could have been mistaken for machine!

It is more open in the back, with the ties running through at waist, and crossing in front to back, or left in front. Almost wrap style except it is seamed in back on the skirt. We picture it tied both ways.

The skirt portion is softly gathered and quite full. Back drops to waist. The straps are ivory satin.

This is an exceptional buying opportunity as hand made vintage lingerie of this quality, and styling is not easy to find. We are delighted to offer this to our customers. The French attribution comes from the owner. Most hand-made lingerie of this quality from this period is usually French.

PLEASE....always ask for help if needed with size. Thank you. ___________________________________________________

CONDITION: Excellent condition. There are a couple of pin dot size spots on body, a tiny repair. Any of these issues truly get lost in the skirt and are not noticeable. It is in beautiful as found condition, but might freshen up even more if cleaned.

SIZE: Medium, but readily made smaller. The top can be altered to fit. As found it is probably a medium.... and due to wrap style and open back, very hard to measure. Size is For reference only. Always use measurements provided below. We want this to fit you! PLEASE email or call with ANY size concerns.

My customers that call with any size or measurement concerns always have the best results.

~Length: 58" ( 41" skirt, 17" bodice....the straps can be made shorter, and gown is easy to hem)

The bodice is wrap style and very difficult to measure....almost a one size fits most medium and smaller.
