Our beautiful bespoke babydoll nightie is a nod to the true-vintage super kitsch babydoll, born from the mind of American designer Silvia Pedlar in 1942. The first of its kind, it was made due to the shortage of fabric during the war, hence the new length! It’s said that Sylvia hated the phrase Babydoll but we think it’s just adorable! Close to the original design, but made for modern purposes- no highly flammable nylon here! Our doll is made from the finest crepe chiffon which hangs beautifully and is cheekily sheer, so dare to go bare or add some wonderful lingerie! These come in 2 lengths- measured from shoulder to hem the longer version is approximately 30” and the shorter approximately 27”.
Each nightie is lovingly made by hand and has a gathered neckline and puff sleeve. The ruffled hem sits on a waved edge for a delicate ‘cupcake’ look. They are adorned with a contrasting satin bow and removable rose which doubles as a hair clip!
Washing instructions: Carefully wash (we recommend putting it into a tied pillow case) on a delicate wash at 30 degrees and drip-dry.
