This 1950s nightgown and robe peignoir set is typical of the high-quality, highly detailed work of pioneering lingerie designer Sylvia Pedlar. 

  • Gown features spaghetti straps, delicate lace, silky blue drawstring at waistband. Closes at back with three tiny shell buttons.
  • Robe has flutter short sleeves, collar, and yoke in delicate lace above the plisse textured, loose-fitting skirt. Closes at yoke with four shell buttons and loops.
  • Textured nylon fabric is crisp, cool, and soft.
  • Color is a vanilla/candlelight white.

That light blue ribbon on creamy white makes this the perfect set to wear on a honeymoon or anniversary.
