Rare Ivory and Orange Satin Chinese 30s Loungewear Pajama Set with Embroidered Dragons
Vintage 1930s loungewear ensemble is a decadent and rare ensemble. This Chinese made beauty is two pieces - a sleeveless tunic and luxurious pants with decadent wide legs! This lovely loungewear set was original 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 white satin tunic has dragons embroidered in orange that match the trim along the edges and the heart shaped pocket. One the trousers, the dragons are done in white on the orange scalloped insets. The pants are classically late 20s to early 30s, with exceptionally wide legs and decorative side buttons on the waist. They have a band of cased elastic at the back.
Bust: 38" (NO darts, allow for ease)
Waist: 38" (intended to be paired with a sash)
Waist: 26" - 34"
Label: Original price tag attached
Condition: Good, as is
This set has been gently hand cleaned and is ready to wear. I have fused three little holes that are right next to the center back seam, and treated some minor yellowing at the same location (ahem) - there is still some very, very light staining but it's clean and not located where it would be noted when worn. there are four little areas of color transfer on the pants from cleaning - a touch of orange on the back of the waist, one little mark of orange next to an insert on the back left left, and two on the back right. There is a small smudge mark at the back waist of the tunic, and another at the side just under the belt loop. This set is sturdy and wears beautifully. I find no other issues to note. Flaws have been taken into account when pricing.
