Amazing True Red 1920s Three Piece Chinese Silk Loungewear Pajama Ensemble
Vintage 1930s loungewear ensemble is a most rare and decadent set, made in a color a red so true it will break your heart and mend it again. This Chinese made beauty offers three matched piece - a jacket with extra long sleeves, a sleeveless tunic, and pants with decadent wide legs! This lovely loungewear set was originally made as particularly luxurious pajamas, but is so striking that either piece could be worn as a fashion item, together or separately. Made of a silk satin that is beyond lustrous, softer than anything you'd find on the racks today. The saturated lipstick red is embroidered in white with scenes of chinese gardens, pagodas, a bridge, river, the sun. Narrow white piping accents the edges. The plants are classically 30s, with exceptionally wide legs and a side button closure. The pants have insets of white with red embroidery, each on scalloped to give the pants dimension. They have a band of cased elastic at the center back. The top is sleeveless with a v neckline and a little heart pocket. The jacket offers belled sleeves, and has a single cloth covered button.

Due to the age and uncommonly wonderful, vibrant red, I elected not to have this drycleaned. There is some darkening from storage soil and minor fade on the upper sleeve/shoulder of the jacket on each side, as well as a bit of darkness at the back crease of the left arm, the back of the neck and a subtle bar on the back. The tunic has a subtle bar on the back left side, and two spots under the embroidery at the front. The trousers have two littl scuffs on the seat, and two pinholes, and one spot on the mid back of the right left. The left leg has some minor spotting a bit above the hem. This wears FANTASTICALLY well, the silk is strong I find no other issues to note. It is stunning.
