EXTREMELY RARE VINTAGE 20s/30s EGGSHELL acetate SWOOSH slip nightgown dress zip:

EXTREMELY RARE VINTAGE 20s/30s EGGSHELL acetate SWOOSH slip nightgown dress zip SMALL

This once exquisite handcrafted nightgown is just under 100 years old

Made of early acetate cellulose in pale eggshell ochre colour it stiffens when ironed

Cut from a generous piece of fabric it has great volume & a dramatic swoosh

Elegant & feminine strappy décolleté & adjustable shoulder straps with pink tinted metal buckles

The bustier is excellently fitted due to a stunning feature

A 12”/30cm LONG fine metal zip closes the dress along your curves

Amazingly - despite its age - the zip still works excellently – it is obviously of very high quality

The zipper isn’t concealed but is barely noticeable as it is so fine

This quality isn’t made anymore I’m afraid

The fabric along the zipper is in pristine condition – this is very unusual

The gown has a maxi length & a glamorous Hollywood swoosh

The fabric is very strong and unusually heavy

The weight of the wide hem gives it its swing

You could treat is as an outer dress if you are willing to accept its flaws…


Due to its age and having survived WWII it has suffered storage wear

It has tiny, small & one larger pale rust coloured dots/stains all over

This is obviously storage wear and so will not look “dirty” but vintage

3-4 of these small stains are also tiny holes – obviously pierced during storage

still, unless looked at very carefully this can be lived with

I have worn the dress this way and never heard anything but complements

But please be aware that unless you have a magic method of treating rust stains the dress is as good as it gets

Though dry-cleaning might puff some glory into its mature state

I purchased the dress from a collector of WWII paraphernalia

It was kept for years in cases by his family

Please take time to look at the images

On the close ups the stains are clearly visible – though possible to live with

The gown could become part of a vintage museum collection or a beautiful theatre costume

If you dare wear pieces like this you will most certainly fall in love with this little treasure
