Vintage 1930s Silk Nightgown / Bias Cut Satin
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Measurements below are unstretched, taken flat and doubled where necessary. As this is bias cut there will be a little stretch to this fabric. Gown is shown on a modern US size 4 dress form but was too large for the form. This would best fit up to a size 10 to 12 based on measurements.
