More things that I love about colder weather – it’s a time when we feel like wearing something a little heavier at night (or just wearing something, period). Here are 3 beautiful nylon gowns with applique’, embroidery, bows, lace and gathers.
Back when it was a pleasure to get dressed! The longest is from the ’40’s, I believe, or the very early ’50’s. Nylon was rationed during wartime, so that would put it into the late ’40’s at the earliest.
The two shorter gowns would be from the ’50’s and show a little more decoration – when items were more lavish after the Forties, and hemlines higher.
Like ’50’s lingerie, you can’t beat the nightgowns of that time for feminine detail and, sometimes, over-the-top frills! On the other hand, early ’30’s and ’40’s silk gowns are to die for. We’ll see some of that, too.
Dressing for day or dressing for bed – could be an adventure in itself . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
