Description

A truly fantastic vintage formal dress. Just look at all this gorgeous satin fabric! The dress is constructed entirely of satin and no dressmaker, union or size label is present. The cap sleeve dress has a sweetheart style neckline and is unlined. It zips up the left side. The skirt is very full (the garment weighs 1.5 pounds) and has beautiful intertwining horizontal bands. Please keep in mind that this dress was meant to be worn over a crinoline to give the full skirt its characteristic midcentury circle skirt shape. The dress has matching satin fingerless gloves which have a single snap closure.

The dress is in good vintage condition with no major odors or holes. Underarms are not discolored. Zipper is in working order. There are a couple snags and stretches that show in the satin. There is also some puckering at the front of the dress where the skirt seam meets the bodice in one spot. Please be aware that this dress does have some fading issues. The beautiful satin fabric is a pale beige pink champagne at the top of the dress which turns into a brighter peachy pink at the bottom of the skirt. Basically the dress has its own ombre look going on which certainly does not detract from the lovely style of the dress but you should be aware of it. This effect was hard to photograph but it does show up in the last photo of the dress laid out on a bed.

Measurements of the garment, taken while flat, are as follows:

Center back of dress to bottom hem length: 55½ inches
Armpit to armpit width: 17½ inches
Width across very top of waistline seam: 14½
Length of the fingerless cuffs: 11½ inches
Width of fingerless cuffs at narrowest spot: 3 inches

Please note that the neck opening has no fastener in the back so one will have to be fairly narrow shouldered and not overly busty to allow this dress to be slipped on over one’s head and slid into place. I could not fit the dress unto my dress form for this reason. My smallest dress form has a shoulder circumference of 35¾ inches and the dress would not fit safely over this width. I imagine that someone could have the dress altered to add a small snap fastener and thin slit at the center back nape of the neck to allow for greater ease in getting in and out of the dress. There is already a side zipper present at the waist/hip.

You are purchasing this dress AS IS and NO returns are accepted so if you have any questions, need additional measurements or more photos please do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks for looking. Visit again soon.
