An exquisite antique cotton nightdress circa early 1920s. The decade that left an indelible mark due to its hedonism, fashion, art, design and style.

During the early Twenties pure white cotton nightgowns, favoured by the Victorians and Edwardians, were still in use but shapes became simpler and frilly details were replaced by minimal but elegant details. The kimono sleeve, as seen here, was popular - I imagine due to the passion for Japanese design at the time.

This pretty nightdress has really beautiful embroidery to the neck and the short split sleeves. The hem has godets to each side seam. The machine stitched seams are concealed. The fabric is a soft, lightweight cotton.

Measures:
Underarm to underarm: 26 inches x 2 (approx 52” bust)
Length: 45 inches
Waist: 54 inches

I would suggest this fits up to a UK 28 but please check your measurements. Of course if you’re a smaller size and like billowy or loose clothes for bed or lounging then you may like this too.

Condition: Amazing for its age, has been hand laundered and is ready to slip on.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
