Vintage 1930s Silk Pajamas Set / Art Deco Chinoiserie Loungewear
Exquisite vintage 1930s silk pajama set in peach and silvery-white silk satin brocade with a Chinoiserie motif. Blouse has black piping and frog clasps. It is flared below the waist, has gathered sleeves with turned cuffs, and a sash with fringe. Pants have pleats in front and back and a clever set of buttoned tabs on each hip to adjust waist size with an additional opening and snap on one side to allow ease when slipping them on/off. It would also be possible to move the buttons to make the waist larger.
This set is in pristine, unworn condition!
There is only one tag reading Made in China inside blouse collar. Parts of this set are hand stitched. The fabric tests as 100% silk. Measurements are approximate, taken flat and doubled where necessary.
