Vintage 1950s’ Faerie Surelock Pink Nylon Nightgown, Size 38 Med / Large

A beautiful 50s’ nightgown by Faerie Surelock, a label that appears to be somewhat rare, but the quality of the fabric and workmanship puts this right up there with many of that era’s finest labels. The candy-pink nylon is supremely soft and silky feeling, and there’s lovely detailing: lace trim at the neckline edged by a net ruffle. and decorative scalloped overlock stitch at the hemline. You must view the photos to see these details (note that the bodice close-up reproduces the color most accurately)!

 Condition: Excellent; barely worn. A few typical picks in the nylon, mostly at the back. No breaks in the lace or netting trims.

Size: Tagged size 38; appears true. Best fit probably for a size 12 (possibly down to a 10). But go by the dimensions below! We suggest you compare to an item you have of similar style or fit. The fabric stretches, and the dimensions given below are unstretched; should comfortably fit a body of about the same sizing. But remember, you don’t want to stretch out the gathers in the bodice!

* Measurements

Bust: 38"

Waist: 28"

Hip: Full, up to about 43"

Bodice: 15 1/2", top of shoulder to bottom of wide waistband  

Length: 54 1/2", top of shoulder to hem

Shipping: Based on weight and destination, calculated at checkout.

Vintage Vanity Fair 70s Multi Color Wrap Nightgown & Peignoir Set, Sz Med

This fabulous Vanity Fair nightgown and peignoir set, ca. early 70s, is rare; in 25+ years of collecting, I've only seen one other like it. Made from a very silky feeling, quality nylon. Both pieces feature wrap styling: Gown has ties in back that wrap to the front; peignoir has two sets of hooks and eyes at the waistline to create the wrap or surplice effect and has a separate, triple-strand self-fabric tie belt. Gown has an empire waistline, while the peignoir's falls at approximately the natural waist. Peignoir has on-seam hidden pocket on either side. Beautifully constructed, with shaping bustline darts on gown and robe, and an interior fabric panel (like a half lining) at the back of the robe that looks designed to add support so that the top keeps its shape and doesn't stretch out from the weight of the full skirt.

Set is perfect for a honeymoon ensemble, cruise, or vacation. The peignoir is perfect to use separately as a dressing gown as well.

Item Number: VF-4121

Price: $125

Condition:  One-owner set in excellent condition. Its owner recalls                                                       

purchasing it to wear during a short hospital stay, which is the only

time she wore it. There is some typical, minimal picking in the nylon, which is nearly impossible to

avoid with these. Set is clean, ready to wear out of the package!

* Size: Appears to be a solid "medium" (8 - 10). Although the gown is labeled size 34, it was too large on my XS mannequin and measures out larger than a 34. Robe is labeled a 12, but fits more like a 10. The nylon fabric stretches, and, due to the wrap styling and gathered waistlines, there's play in the fit. See measurements below:

Bust: Approx. 38"

High Waist (at underbust): Approx. 25" to 28" (adjustable via wrap ties)
