Looks like something straight off the set of Downton Abbey...

This is the most beautiful dress I've ever seen. It is a very vintage black velvet floor length evening gown / dress with mesh and sequins at the neckline and top. There is a ruffle that flanks the top sequined part and the skirt is long with one large ruffle at the bottom. The top is sleeveless except for the ruffle that laps over the shoulder. The dress has two toggle buttons at the back near the high neckline. There is a keyhole opening in the back right below the buttons. The back has a deep v where the mesh is; the front is scooped where the mesh is. The waist is empire but then extends down into a regular waistline where the black velvet sash is.

Truly a beautiful piece - looks like it may have been homemade. The velvet of this dress is so sumptuous and beautiful! Don't miss out!


Bust 14.5 inches
Waistline (empire) 14 inches (I think it was designed to be worn with a corset.)
Length from empire waist 47.5 inches
Ruffle at bottom 11 inches

This dress is NOT in perfect condition; in fact, it needs a good bit of work. There are some tears in the velvet fabric and some worn holes too. The sequined mesh part looks to be in pretty good condition but the rest of it will need some restoration. It IS an antique dress! Please remember this when buying.
