50s Vanity Fair Women's Nightgown Vintage 1950s Crystal Pleat Nightie Small

$ 45.00 Sale Save

 Vanity Fair vintage nightgown in a great color, flattering design, and yummy 50s nylon! It is a confection of crystal pleats. The bodice gets its bust fullness from the vertical pleating, with the sides of the bust section angling diagonally into the wide waist panel. Dolman-cut pleating creates soft wide ruffle like little cap sleeves. The cinderella style waist in front narrows to points on both side. The long flowing skirt has crystal pleating in front, very slimming.

SIZE: Labeled size 34. The bust and hips measurements were taken with the gown laying flat, without accounting for the room created by the crystal pleats, so those are quite flexible. For example, 12" of skirt pleating stretched to 30"! The bust should have at least 6" of give, probably more.
