There is something so very glamorous about vintage nightwear. Not a cotton nightie or slouchy pyjama in sight, the nylon, silk and polyester creations are usually more demure or cutesy than their modern counterparts. Whether you enjoy a slinky sexy number or something more fluffy and adorable (think Rizzo vs Sandra Dee) then we are bound to have some vintage nightwear you will be dreaming about.
So, lets get into this week's Fave Five with my handpicked five favourite vintage knitwear pieces...
