Description

Peach silk sleeveless nightgown. The nightgown reaches just below knees with a-line shape. The body of the gown is a lighter shade of peach, while there are details in darker shiny peach silk. There are two bands of silk running vertically from the straps down to just below the waist, ending in a part and then angling upward and outward toward the sides. The neckline comes down into a shallow V with an APP monogram centered below the V. The monogram is embroidered with darker shiny peach silk in a rectangular shape. It is heavily stylized and shows an Art Deco influence with dots, angles and curly letters arranged in a triangular shape with the A on top and the two P's below it. There is a belt loop on either side of the waist. There is cording detail on the bottom of the skirt on the corners that sweep in an arc from the side seam to the lower hem of the dress. The back has a rounded neckline and shows the same dark silk band duration and cording at the bottom corners. There is no monogrammed detail on the back.
