Totally dramatic! vintage early 1970s full sweep black chiffon nightgown.. Coveted Intime of California label its truly fabulous.
Scoop neckline front and back, the neckline and wide straps are edged in very tiny black satin rolled piping.. just a barely subtle accent. Tons and tons of gathers to black silky nylon then an over layer of sheer silky black chiffon start at the neckline and just flow to the floor.. creating a wonderful huge sweep at the hemline.
Tiny little "buttonholes" on each side of the gown through both layers give the gown so much versatility! It comes with a black satin ribbon sash, and you can thread it through just the nylon layer, allowing the chiffon to float.
you can thread it though both layers and create a goddess style nightgown.
or.. you can wear it under the nylon, and over the chiffon just in front, so the back chiffon trails behind you.
Which ever style you choose, this gown always looks fabulous!!
The chiffon layer has a stitched lettuce leaf hemline, so its curly feminine and fabulous on!

Condition ~ The top and the nylon layer of the gown are perfect.. sadly, i do think someone put this in the clothes dryer.. a real no no with chiffon..there are two areas at the left leg in front, one about thigh and one calf height where the chiffon has puckered. Still very wearable, and beautiful, but please know it is not perfect.
