Vintage 1920s Heavy Black Silk Art Deco Lingerie, Nightdress or Evening Slip for under a lace cocktail gown. I have shown the gown laid out flat, and not on a mannequin as the overall size/shape may be viewed with clarity. Please note that this garment is of beautiful satuesque proportions, not only is it generously sized but it is quite long. Table cut and hand finished. This is a very simple gown yet the cut has turned it into the utmost couture garment.
Delightful neckline on the square with ultra Art Deco pleating from shoulder to over the bust with inverted pleats at each side of the skirt, at hip level. It has been made to compliment the curvier lady, with its clean lines.
Originally, the garment was intended as an item of lingerie, perhaps also as an underslip. Today, these delicious garments are worn as gowns.
Wear with a long navel length set of white pearls and fur wrap or maybe a silk piano shawl for the ultimate evening attire. The design of the garment is still bang on trend, with cutaway shoulders, to compliment the ladys neck and shoulders, vintage couture like this never dates and it would make a stunning addition to any collection. The gown has been professionally cleaned and is free of foxing, fading to the fabric or shattering.
Most suited to a uk size 20 perhaps 22. The measurements given have been taken seam to seam when the garment was laid flat and relaxed. Please compare the sizes given for an exact fit. Above the bust line; 36.
The item has been shown in natural light for clarity and is completely untouched digitally. Please drop me a line, if you have any questions. Closed Sunday and bank holidays.
