late 1920s to 1930s floral chiffon lamé original evening or 'night' pyjamas - all in one art deco palazzo jumpsuit
While this is clearly sold as seen, as there are multiple flaws, it's the only one I have seen quite like it! A rather more glamorous version of the beach pyjama, constructed from a floral patterned chiffon decorated with gold lamé in a very Art Deco design. I've seen these more decadent materials in beach pyjama referred to as a 'night pyjama' in early 30s literature!
Good deco seaming to hip area, huge palazzo legs. Deep-ish v back, fastens with stainless hooks and eyes to one shoulder and side hooks and eyes - entry is step in style.
As you can see from the photos, there are a number of old repairs where it has been backed in black chiffon, various seam repairs, a few pulled seams, and the odd small hole. I've photographed everything.
I'd kept with the intention of restoring it more comprehensively but I keep putting it off so selling on as it comes! Its still a really interesting piece.
Measures: approx UK8/10
Bust 38" approx inc cup room (36 plus darts)
Waist 28" (when stretched loosely - bias cut)
Length from shoulder to hem approx 56"
Rise is 18" (dropped crotch)
Inseam is 22"
As described above and as pictured. It's currently pretty much all in one piece but I would suggest replacing/redoing the old repairs more professionally, and just a general going over. The material itself is still pretty stable but clearly delicate in nature. Selling as seen - please see my many many photos (sorry!)
