This luxurious 1930's powder blue silk nightdress with delicate white floral embroidered accents, is just the piece to welcome to your lingerie collection.
The V shaped neckline is edged with softly scalloped and embroidered edges, which accent the cross over design along the front of the bust-line and along the back. The wide shoulder straps set off the sleeveless cut, and draw the eye to the delicate white thread floral cut-away embroidery along the décolletage and bust-line. The rounded seam positioned beneath the bust gathers soft pleats that radiate along the base of the bust-line, whilst framing a central floral embroidery design along the waist. The bias cut off the skirt-line skims along the silhouette, whilst the matching silk ties draw the waistline in for a more fitted silhouette. Finished with a delicately detailed scalloped hemline, every element of this night gown showcases the wonderful lingerie designs of the era.
