60s Red Black Lace & Marabou Feather Trim Chemise Set - Small


Vintage 60s matching set in red with black floral lace and marabou feather trim, featuring a babydoll chemise dress and sheer panty. The dress has a sheer layer over a semi-sheer slip layer with black lace trim, and a one shoulder silhouette with a satin spaghetti strap on the other side. This set was held by a costuming house in Montréal, Canada called L'Atelier de Costumes BJL, which was founded by Louise Jobin in 1972. The dress and panty are by two separate designers, so we think they may have been put together as a set by the costuming house.
