Miss Elaine Double Chiffon Peignoir Set Medium
Miss Elaine Chiffon Peignoir Set in jet black. This stunning chiffon and nylon peignoir robe and nightgown from Miss Elaine is unbelievably soft, in jet black circa 1960 in beautifully stored condition.
The peignoir robe features 3-inch wide lace embellishment at the front of the robe with sheer chiffon full sleeves that have been finished in 3 ½ inch lace with elastic at the wrist.Empire waistline softly gathered at the shoulders and back creating a Grecian back design with a draping effect that is simply stunning.
This is accomplished with a skinny chiffon tie that threads into 4 loops at the front with two button holes at the side/back which creates the drape after it is tied at the back. One hook and eye at the center closes the robe should you wish not to use the tie back. Hemline is smothered in 3-inch scalloped lace which adds weight to the chiffon at the bottom and truly “swishes” as you walk.
The nightgown is sheer 9-inch lace over chiffon at the front and sides with sheer, double layer chiffon in a vee at the back. Empire elastic waist, the skirt features sheer chiffon over a nylon skirt. The hemline has been finished in 5/8 inch lace and has a sweep of 70 inches.
