Beautiful, and unusual, black vintage 1970s Donald Brooks for Maidenform nightgown or dress.

Love the large lace inset cut-out across the bodice, which is shaped halfway between a club (as in playing card suite) and a cloud lift. Beautiful. Hint: If you'd like to wear this as an evening gown, a nude bra underneath will do the trick, and you won't get arrested ;)

Empire waisted, with elastic across the back waist, and a sweeping full skirt.

Donald Brooks was a Coty-award-winning designer, and is one of my all-time favorite vintage designers. This piece was originally purchased at the fabulous and alas long gone now high end west coast department store, I. Magnin.
