Not on view

The overall effect of this negligee is luxurious, feminine and seductive. Made of the finest silk, the work entailed in applying the lace to the slippery silk and carefully cutting it away would have been labor-intensive and therefore extremely costly. The result is a romantic creation to be worn in the privacy of the home.
