Vintage D'Allaird's Coast to Coast Nightgown in Ivory Satin & Lace  
When I first picked this up I was completely fooled, I thought for sure is was a vintage 30s bias cut nightgown. After quite a bit of research and looking closly at the interior construction, I'm dating this as 70s instead.

- Luscious, heavy, ivory, liquid satin
- Glamourous bias cut design
- Gathered cups for curve enhancing shaping
- Beautiful sheer rose patterned lace
- Fabric has a look like old rayon satin but I think it is blended fabric and may have some poly in it; has serged seams so I cannot do a burn test.
- I could definitely see a modern Gal wearing this out as a dress.

Label: D'Allaird's Coast to Coast. I was surprised to find that famed British Department Store, Marks and Spencer, owned a chain of women's clothing stores in Canada called D'Allairds which operated from 1972 and was sold in 1992. This is an earlier label, so I'm dating this as 70s.

Length 59 inches
Bust 36 inches. This takes into consideration the fullness in the cups, so this would fit a 34 C/D well.
Waist 32 inches
Hips 36 inches

Excellent condition: Freshly washed, no holes, no problems.  A beautiful 30s style gown that is sturdy enough to really wear.

Condition Grading Guidelines for Vintage Clothing & Accessories. 


Rating vintage items is subjective, so in order to be as clear as possible we provide a condition grade as well as a detailed description of any flaws noted.  

MINT :  absolutely perfect condition.  I usually reserve this category for New With Hang Tags (NWT's), or New  Without Tags (NWOT's).

EXCELLENT : Previously worn or used with no notable flaws.

GREAT: an item is absolutely wearable but has some minor flaws. i.e. well executed minor repairs, missing belt / button, some minor wash wear.

GOOD:  an item is wearable but could never be returned to Excellent condition even if repairs are made. i.e. noticeable fading of garment.

FAIR: an item may still be wearable but has significant flaws.

POOR / Cutter ~ An item with very significant flaws, but may be of interest for pattern or design study, for display purposes, or for the value of the fabric or trim.  i.e. large stains, shattering of fabric.
