In excellent condition. One thread belt loop has come unstitched at the top. That's the only issue of note.

Capelet has pointy collar and one hook and eye to close. Dress has fitted bodice and side zip. Though well done, dress may have been altered sometime in the past. There is 3" of hem that could be let down.

Measurements taken with garment laying flat and doubled when necessary--not really any significant stretch with the lace fabric here.

Center Front: 39"
Bodice to Hem: 10.5"
Each Strap: 14" --straps could be extended another 5"
Waist to Hem: 28.5"
Bust: 34"
Waist: 27.5"
Hips: 38"

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

Please review the listing and shop policies carefully, as most all items are vintage (and very often may have had multiple previous owners!) Feel free to ask any questions at all before buying. Refunds would require return of the item (at the buyer's expense and in the same condition as purchased,) and refunds of shipping charges are not offered.

Shipping policies

I try to ship the most economical way possible and offer complimentary upgrades when the price difference is nominal. Additional shipping options are available upon request and for the appropriate higher fee. I use recycled packaging and simple wrapping for all my items.

If actual shipping charges are less than the paid fee, I will refund the difference! Please convo me with questions regarding your particular shipping needs.

Additional policies

What I sell is vintage and generally used. I will note condition (and noticeable flaws, if any) as clearly as possible in each item's description. My rule of thumb is that I don't sell anything that I wouldn't use or wear myself.

NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I do ship internationally! Please convo me for a specific rate to your country if you don't see it on the listing. I am happy to create a custom listing for you and/or to answer any specific questions you may have before the sale. I ALWAYS refund excessive postage fees!
