Feel like a princess in this ultra feminine nightgown! The bodice is fully constructed from lace and displays quite an illusion, being semi transparent. The scooped neckline is decorated with a satin bow and is supported with elastic, as well as the border of the sleeves. Waistline is also elasticized and is offset by a ribbon to tie around the waist. Hemline has lace trim.
Being a size 14, and bearing in mind that this gown is from the 40s, the measurements will be smaller than today’s size 14. The measurements are as follows, with plenty of stretch (lingerie elastic has a lot more stretch than regular garment elastic): Bust line, from seam to seam, underarm, 17”; waist, 11 ½” across, length, from armhole seam to hem, 38”.
This gown is in wonderful vintage, wearable condition with only one tiny flaw, that being a tiny slit in the folds of the bodice, which will be repaired and not noticed.
