Pink Nightgown with Lace

Description

A pink nylon nightgown that is loose-fitting and ankle length. There is a loose, low collar with white lace lining just beneath. The lace mirrors the collar's shape, scooping down and extending over the tops of the shoulders to make small sleeves that top the shoulders.
