Clara's 1930s Pajamas

In the 1920s, lounge pajamas were quite fashionable as beachwear, worn to cover a bathing suit. As the decade progressed, pajamas were worn as day wear and even worn to parties.

In the movie Singin' in the Rain, which was set in 1927, Lena Lamont is wearing gorgeous silky pink and black pajamas on the movie set when she meets Donald Lockwood. And in the fashion scene, the model wears some outrageous fur-trimmed turquoise and green pajamas "for lounging in your boudoir."

By the 1930s, movie actresses had made pajamas into a popular fashion choice for wearing day or night, worn as a casual alternative to dressing up.

Clara’s pajamas are quite stylish, and she could wear them for day or night. The pajamas have a short-sleeved tunic top, tied with a soft silky bow, which was worn over soft, loose pants.

If the pajamas are a bit too avant-garde, Clara also has a long nightgown with butterfly sleeves and a high, curved waistline. Pinch pleats add a nice stylish accent to the yoke, and some piping adds extra detail.
