40s Vintage Silk Applique Hand Made Lace Bed Jacket
A beautiful example of the sewing skills many women possessed during the war years when resources were scarce. Peach lace is simply tailored in a modified swing silhouette, neckline is adorned with a lovely floral motif silk applique that has been hand detailed with the daintiest of stitches. Silk ribbons add the finishing touch to tie in a bow at center front. Elbow length sleeves feature the same silk applique motif. Garment is hand made, no tags, jacket is pristine with only very slight wear to the silk ribbons. Bust measures 38, boxy cut is meant to fit medium or small as shown.
