Off the shoulder, marabou-trimmed, velvet, princess bodice tops a huge skirt. The fitted velvet bodice has a front point and a zipper closure in the back. The skirt is a matte black lightweight fabric which rustles like taffeta. Circa 1980s. To get the full skirt look, you’ll need a crinoline or hoop skirt.

My dress form is a size 6. I couldn’t quite zip it up until I put it on my plastic 1/2 form. I think it fits more like a modern size 4, but compare the actual garment measurements below to your own clothing (not your body) to determine fit. Measurements have been taken with the garment lying flat, and have not been doubled.

Fabric content: unknown
Fabric care: tag reads: dry clean only--not by the coin operated method

Frequently asked questions about BlackRockVintage

VINTAGE MEANS USED
The care and storage of vintage clothing can influence the condition. Please expect most vintage items to show some wear. I define wear as light fading, pin holes, pulled threads, fraying and perhaps a few light stains.
I TRY MY BEST
Since you can't touch the item or try it on I take a lot of time to provide measurements and detail in my listings. Since monitor settings can vary, I describe the colors. I take the time to photograph and describe any flaws I see.
CHECK ALL PHOTOS
If I offer a garment with any more than light wear, I will describe and/or photograph the flaws the best I can. The photos are part of the description, so please use the zoom feature to examine the item carefully.
RETURNS (US Residents Only)
I accept returns (sent back within 7 days of USPS delivery date via tracking number) on items as long as my original tags are in place, and the garment is in the same condition as it went out. The buyer will pay return shipping unless item was grossly misrepresented.

Instructions for Return:

1. Please message me that you will be returning the item.
2. Please wrap the garment neatly in original packaging, or other clean protective material.
3. The buyer must use USPS Priority Shipping for any return and send the tracking number in an Etsy convo on the day of mailing.
4. If the garment is worth more than $50, insurance must be purchased to cover the amount over $50 (USPS Priority Shipping insures up to $50).
