#VS543 1920s Embroidered Chinese Pajamas Jacket Pants SOLD

1920s Chinese hand embroidered pajamas of silk jacquard in a gorgeous shade of peacock blue. A favorite of silent movie stars like Pola Negri, Lillian Gish, and Anna May Wong, these garments were the perfect exotic touch. The outfit has a lovely floral and fruit motif with stylized bats for good luck, and silk jacquard ribbon trim with very fine sleeve end embroidery. Worn loose, the pajamas would fit a range of sizes. The jacket measures approx. up to 38" bust, 46" around the bottom, and 28" overall length. The pants, with and elasticized waist, measure approx. 28-44" waist, 24" inseam, up to 46" hips, and 35" overall length. When I got the ensemble, someone had folded and sewn the sleeve end embroidery under, so there is a row of machine stitching holes on the left sleeve. Thankfully, only one side was machine sewn, and it really doesn't show much amid all of the beautiful embroidery. Except for that, the pajamas are in excellent condition.
