utterly lovely and romantic
a vintage nylon & lace nightgown
made by Seamprufe, circa 1930s-40s

this is made of silky soft nylon acetate with peek-a-boo chantilly lace across the shoulders & inset at the waist. The long skirt is cut on the bias for an elegant, floaty movement, and tiny little pleats along the bustline and waist provide a perfectly flattering fit. The color is a delicate pink that in certain lights has a soft peachy hue. A Seamprufe ad from 1939 called this color "tea rose".

m e a s u r e s

chest: 40" to 47" / 102-120cm (fabric has a nice bit of stretch)
waist: 35" up to 41" / 89-104cm (can also fit smaller because of the two satin ribbon ties at the waist)
hips: up to 50" / 127cm
length: 58" / 147cm from top of shoulder to bottom hem

This gorgeous vintage gown looks like it has never been worn. I looked very carefully and didn't find any stains or flaws. Astoundingly pristine, particularly for something that's been around for so long! It's 70+ years young and in excellent, near mint condition ♥
