Designer Elsa Schiaparelli powder blue vintage nightgown, simply a stunning lingerie item.
Vintage Schiaparelli nightgown is semi sheer and features a delicate white lace bodice with straps adorned with rows of powder blue, ruffled lace which is reinforced for strength with a fine mesh fabric and finished off with blue satin trim on the lower portion of the bodice.
A single, long satin blue ribbon is affixed to this Schiaparelli lingerie item, I think it is meant to be tied into a bow in the front of the bodice. As you can see from my pictures, I have not tied it into a bow. I very gently looped it around the back of the gown....the ribbon is in remarkable condition and I did not want to damage its perfectness by tying it up and wrinkling it. I shall leave it up to you. The ends of the satin ribbons display evidence of extremely minuscule fraying, approximately 1/8".
The full length, flowing skirt has a 140" sweep.
Everything about this gown declares elegance and confidence.
The fabric used in the creation of this vintage nightgown is very high quality, as one should expect from designer Elsa Schiaparelli.
