Vintage 1950s oh so romantic Grecian inspired night gown in soft apricot hue accented with pale pink pleated columns along the bodice which extends up to the shoulders and down to the hem. The bodice behind the pink panels are open which leads me to think this probably came with a sash that looped through. Some light discoloring on the shoulder and small spot on the hip.
measurements: 56" length (including straps) / 34" bust / 30" waist / 17" bodice length (inc straps)
fit notes: pinned lightly at waist, a ribbon of your choice would create the same fit effect
condition: excellent/great vintage condition

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.
- Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
- Wear your garments more than once before laundering
- Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
- If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
- Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
- Spot clean garments immediately
- Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
- Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
