~Fabulous French Vintage Nightgown or Petticoat in Fine Cotton with Hand Embroidery and Valenciennes Lace

~~~~~~~~~~
++THESE ITEMS ARE RESERVED++PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE LINDA++
++THANK YOU++

I am constantly looking for items of this fine quality and elegant beauty....but they are rare, expensive for me to purchase and just difficult to find...especially in this impeccable condition.
So we are truly pleased to be presenting 3 genuinely expectional pieces today.


This handmade French gown is truly stunning with its lavishly rich embellishment, its fine materials and exquisite detailing. In fact it was most likely made for the trousseau of a French bride of some means.


This lovely thing was entirely Hand Sewn of the lightest possible cotton batiste. It is inset with narrow bands of Valenciennes lace both for the bodice and the lower skirt where the lace alternates with row after row of impossibly tiny pintucks. More bands of Valenciennes lace form the straps. The the bottom edge is finished with a deep and very full ruffle of Valenciennes lace. This gown closes at the back with tiny mother-of-pearl buttons. We have threaded the band of eyelet at the bodice top with a pale pink ribbon and we will add the same ribbon to the other two bands of eyelet on the gown before sending this fabulous gown to its lucky purchaser!

As as a rare bonus this gown was designed for an average medium sized figure. Usually these garments are impossibly tiny! The waist measurement can be up to 34 inches when the eyelet is fully extended or can be as tiny as you like. The bust measurement is 38 inches but again can be pulled in with the ribbons for a charming gathered effect. As well both the measurements could be adjusted to a bit smaller by an experienced seamstress. This gown measures a full 50 inches from the shoulder to the hem. As well if one wished, I think this lovely creation would make an absolutely exquisite gown for a Vintage Summer Wedding!

Finally this item is in superbly excellent vintage condition. The fabric is fresh, crisp and bright white. I see no stains, holes or repairs and really this gown looks to have never been worn.
This gown will come to you freshly hand laundered and ironed.

This Charming and truly rare bit of French finery would make an lovely gift for a bride a sweetheart...or perhaps you might just like to indulge yourself with this elegant and feminine gown...for no reason except that it is magnificently ... beautiful...
