70s & 80s Nightgowns

During this period the nightgowns were often in bright colors in lovely glossy nylon. Elegant and simple slip style gowns with lace insertions and floor length sweeping hems.

This stunning example from CatBooks1940s. 70s Keyhole in raspberry red.

Late 70s, early 80s nightgown in lovely glossy peach nylon, very much in the Olga tradition. Courtesy of Pinup Dresses.

A long slip style gown in an unusual shade of mauve rose that I recently sold. The tag is pretty faded. Made in Canada. 100% nylon. Dates to 70s.
