"The Set" three piece peignoir set Size M/L (+) #037
Pure decadence! This is "The Set"!
The label reads "Creations Irene et Gaston Fait A La Main". We believe this is a one of a kind set, it was expertly made and of the most decadent materials of the era! We suspect this may have been trousseaux and that the bride may have been or was soon planning to become pregnant.
The Dressing Robe features a nipped waist, a wide band of divine embroidered lace is backed by a sturdy net, it does not have much give and will fit waists approximately 26" up to 29". The other two pieces however, were designed to fit and stretch to fit a variety of waist sizes!
This three piece set is rich with extraordinary details!
Made from a surplus of shiny swishy rayon, it has a dull sheen rather than a blinding shine. As you can see, there was liberal use of some of that most breathtaking embroidered lace on both the dressing gown (robe) and bed jacket.
The nightgown is adorned with a touch of beautiful lace and a long, oh so long!, shiny pink ribbon. There is a peephole near the bottom of the v front. It has gathered shirred shoulders and a stretchy elastic waist, it is "Grecian style" and will fit and look fabulous on a variety of sizes and shapes!
The bed jacket has the sweetest puff sleeves and is a swingy "open" style and closes with a sweet pink ribbon alone. It also features tiny pink ribbon bows on its sleeves, lots of beautiful embroidered lace and ruffled lace edging around the yoke.
The dressing gown is simply divine! The style is absolutely stunning and reminiscent of Edwardian styles, it features lots of beautiful lace, three fabric covered buttons at the neckline, and seven at the waist and those Bishop sleeves, trimmed in more decadent lace and close with with tiny buttons.
This set is made to the standard of a wedding gown and of as fine fabric and trims.
Though the nightgown and bed jacket can fit a variety of sizes, the dressing gown is limited to a maximum of 29" waist if you wish to wear it closed.
This set is in incredibly excellent condition. There are no notable flaws besides the two black marker spots on the interior of the jacket and gown as shown in last two photos, we promise they are not at all visible from the other side. Possibly a small scratch or two, but nothing to make note of.
