RESERVED FOR LIV - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 due 23rd Janyary 2023
This incredible lounge pyjama set was made in the early 1930s from sumptuous black and pink satin. The pink satin top was cut in a simply elegant and loose fitting line with a high neckline and a gorgeous passementerie frog closure at the neck. Tightly cuffed sleeves show off the wonderful large bishop sleeves and delicate pin tuck details adorn the shoulders. The waist can be cinched in with the two matching pink and black satin ties, which look stunning worn together. The trousers have been fashioned from rich black satin and are styled to be fitted at the waist with a beautifully flowing loose fitting palazzo leg. The pants fasten with hooks and eyes at the side.
Waist: 40” but can be cinched in with ties
Shoulders: 14” seam to seam
Length: 27 1/2”
Inside leg: 24”
Outside leg: 43”
The set is in very good condition with only a few minor flaws as pictured. The button on the frog closure is missing but we will include a period correct black glass button.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
