Help me give this pieces a new life. Stunning 1920s Silk Nightgown / Slip Dress. Silk with Lace embellishments on chest and back.
It didn't have the original belt so I added a wonderful beige velvet ribbon. I also love the curvy hem. (Las medidas están en pulgadas 1Pulgada=2.54cm).
Total Lenght from Shoulder: 42 front - 43 back. For your reference the mannequin is a women size Medium and it's measurements are. Bust: 88 cm / 34.64. Waist: 66 cm / 25.98. Hips: 90 cm / 35.43.It was a bit big for the mannequin. Maybe a L/XL Please check measurements! Compare them to a similar outfit that fits. Antique hand made items where handmade and differ to standard sizes. Please check the measurements closely for determining fit.
I do not give sizes for vintage items as women's sizes are not standardized and a majority of these dresses were homemade or specialty made to fit one person. Also if vintage items are size tagged they usually run smalller comparing to the actual sizes.A good method to check is to measure a similar item that fits and compare. Condition: Clean and ready to wear. It has some stains on the back skirt. I haven't tried a stain remover.
I think they are hardly noticeable while worn. I added a piece of the same velvet ribbon to the top of the shoulders because I realized after the pictures that the lace there was fragile it needed a reinforcement (last picture). A good method is to measure a similar item that fits and compare. Please remember that Vintage Items have been previously worn and loved so a small flaw may go unnoticed. Any accessories used in the picture are not included, there are there to show how the outfit could be worn or a decorative object.I need to be honest. I sell Vintage and Antique Clothing and I would say anything before 30s should be treated with care and worn with care. Mostly these items will be fragile especially 20s silk or Edwardian very fine Muslin. Some can not handle stress and will tear easily. Should be bought a size bigger where possible or should be a little loose on. This is Vintage or antique, items will not look brand new modern clothing from the shops.
If an item is marked XS but looks loose and big! It really is XS on the upper body shoulder opening of the arm.It may look big and loose but the shoulders or opening of the arm will be small, or the waist. The sleeves may not be long to the wrist but more of a 3/4. Buttons also may vary in shape and size on the same blouse, these blouses are old and would have lost buttons along the way.
