This elegant 1960's nightdress, rendered in a circular Art Deco pattern in shades of arctic blue and cream, with cream lace finishings, is just the piece to welcome to your lingerie collection.
The V shaped neckline is edged with softly scalloped floral cream lace with delicate eye-lash details. The wide shoulder straps boast gathered pleats along the shoulder seams, decorated with pale blue ribbon bows. The rounded seam positioned beneath the bust and decorated with cream floral lace, gathers soft pleats that radiate along the base of the bust-line. The bias cut off the skirt-line skims along the silhouette, whilst the matching fabric belt draws the waistline in. Finished with a double tiered and pleated hemline, accented by scalloped cream floral lace details, every element of this night gown showcases the wonderful lingerie designs of the era.
