Pink1920's Dressing Robe!
From the seller:
This auction is for a most exquisite late Edwardian, early flapper vintage piece of lingerie. This is absolutely beautiful work...definite museum quality. This pale pink ruffled top quality silk is beautifully hand embroidered with additions of exceptional lace which has been threaded with silk ribbons. This pretty piece has early snap closure under the loveliest of heavy silk ribbon bows with roses....this is to die for ! Any shading you see or indifference in color is due to my camera and it's flash. I love the typical 1920's Flapper dropped waist with layers of horizontal tucks in back. Each side has been gathered into a rosette...this is ever so charming! This sweet early dressing gown is in near pristine condition. The only flaws to note is some light age spotting right sleeve near the lace and some back ruffle seam stress...see magnified photos below. If you are a serious collector of antique lingerie this is a must see piece. This gorgeous dressing gown measures as follows:
Bust 42 inches
Waist: 42 inches
Hips: 44 inches
Underarm to lower hemline: 38 inches
Underarm to sleeve end: 8 inches
Mid back to lower hemline: 47 inches.
Truly a museum piece of 1900's lingerie !
Yay! Measurements! :-D
