ON SALE THIS WEEK: Was $34.95
This is a great set from a quantity of glamourous clothing I found at an estate sale for a woman who had been both an avid collector and entrepreneur with shops in the southwest. Most of the clothing had been stored for some time; just about everything survived well.
This set is from Private Luxuries, done in a splash of rich stained glass colors, in a fabric that alternates color with black sheer, giving it an exotic touch. The overall pattern has an interesting weave or texture...it reminds me of the look of burnout velvet...done in nylon! Quite striking!
Incidentally, the colors in the pictures are not nearly as vibrant as they are in "person"...the white half mannequin I used to model the pieces seems to have dimmed them a bit!
The short robe or peignoir (I suppose a peignoir can be short?) is full so that it will float; there is both an inside tie and a wrap sash to close it. Both the bottom of the sleeves and the entire front edge has a self facing. The knockout shortie gown leaves not much to the imagination...it is styled with adjustable straps, a gathered area across most of the bust, with seaming that gives quite a bit of flip to the short skirt.
The bustline measures 20" across lying flat, increasing slightly from there to the hips before flaring. The only length I feel I can give you is from where the strap connects to the gathered bust (since the straps adjust quite a lot) to the hem...29-1/2". The robe measures approximately 37" in length from neck to hem; the sleeves 22" from shoulder seam to edge. It measures about 27-1/2" across lying flat, measuring across the back armhole to armhole...the front bands touch at this measurement, so there is plenty of room to lap over.
Most of the lingerie that came from this sale doesn't seem to have been worn. I can't verify it on this but it's certainly in pristine condition. I handwashed most of the items only because they had been stored.
This set has a definite personality...vibrant colors, feminine styling, sensuous to the touch....what more can you ask?
