1920's Bed Gown top

From the seller:

NOTE: This is a vintage item which means that it is more than 30 years old. All vintage/antique items have been worn unless stated otherwise. Please keep this in mind before purchasing. Thank you :)

We are pleased to offer this fabulous tunic circa 1917-1920 inspired by designer Paul Poiret.

FABRIC: The lovely tunic is fashioned from a semi-sheer, soft and wispy silk crepe in a shade of very pale melon green. The entire tunic is hand done with intricate details.

The Tunic:
The top features a flowing silhouette with a deep "V" neckline and 3/4 length caftan/kimono sleeves both decorated with pleated ivory tulle.

The neckline is decorated with a pin-tuck yoke adorned with lovely silk ribbon roses. Each "bow" of the rosette is twisted/knotted in the middle and decorated with yellow floss in the center.

The tunic has long sides with matching ivory hanging tassels. This was perhaps made for the boudoir but it is nice enough to be worn as a blouse.

**Please note that that is shown with tulle knickers which are not part of the blouse or included in this sale. Thank you**

Please see our "" page for a condition chart. The condition of each item is based on the chart that we have provided.

This is in near EXCELLENT and READY TO WEAR condition with the following flaws to note:

1) This has a slight shadow under the arms which will not be noticeable when worn.

2)There is a pinhole at the front and two brown spots close to the flowers. Please see the last photo

From Me:

Not a Poiret. More likely inspired by Boue Soeurs if not one their creations. And yes, it is a pajama top.
