LADY'S PYJAMAS: Pattern 5383: Lady's Pyjamas, in Two Styles (1928)

'These dainty pyjamas are very simply made, and are suitable for summer or winter wear' - read the pattern text.

Issued in 1928 in Madame Weigel's Journal of Fashion, these elegant slimline pyjamas reflected the style of the decade. Two styles were offered: in v-neck with contrasting bands, or square neck with filet insertion. The pyjamas legs could be loose or drawn in.

Suggested fabrics were viyella, winceyette, crepe de chine, Fuji silk, or washing satin. Gorgeous!

This postcard is A5 in size (148 x 210mm), printed on quality 350gsm card with a glossy finish. The reverse side is printed with a pattern description.
