This dress is pretty amazing. Made from a thick luxurious fabric in bright dark red wine with an outrageous cummerbund belt with 3 large pom poms made from yarn and a long tie with pom poms on the ends. The cummerbund, sleeve cuffs and hem line are quilted in the same pattern. The lining is a sheer organza. There is a zipper in the front of the gown. The workmanship is simply amazing. Truly a work of art. Tags and union label date it to 1970's. Tag says size 4. It is very small with a 24" waist. An excellent addition for someone's collection. Or amazing dress for the tiny woman. Price reduced.

In excellent condition except a rip in the fabric in the under layer where someone tried to get in the dress and was too big in the hip. It is on the inside of the dress at the waist. You can not see it from the outside.

shoulder to shoulder: 15 1/2"
bust: 32"
waist: 24"
hip: free
sleeve: 24"
length from shoulder 49" tea length

Frequently asked questions about EadoVintage

Vintage sizes are different than modern sizes. I usually try to size as xtra small 34" bust or less, small 34-36" bust, medium 38"-40" bust, large 42"-44" bust and XLarge 45" bust plus. Each listing should have measurements. These are taken laying flat and doubled where appropriate. The best is to take something that fits you well, measure it and compare the measurements or take your measurements with under garments add a little for ease and comfort and compare to listed measures. Many vintage items have easily tailored construction. If something is a little big you can usually have it taken in. Convo me and I can look at it for you.
I hate this question. Smell is a matter of opinion. I don't find the vintage smell offensive. Some people do. Do I wash everything? No I can not dry clean or wash everything. It's just impossible. I have too much and it would be cost prohibitive. I discount it if it needs cleaning and I haven't done it. I do hand wash a lot of the things that are hand washable especially if they have a stain. Everything is hanging together or stored together so even if I do wash it it may still have a vintage smell. If you love and buy a lot of vintage you know what I'm talking about. It goes away when you wash or dry clean. Steaming will also help on more delicate items. I usually steam prior to photographing. Please Ask to have it cleaned before shipping
Yes I will discount if you are buying multiple items. The more you buy the better the discount. Convo me with a list and let me calculate the shipping and discuss a discount. Combining shipping with etsy calculator is always too high no matter what I do.
Yes and no. Sometimes. Depends. You can convo me with any reasonable offer.
Most vintage lovers understand that wearing vintage sometimes means accepting small imperfections. I really try to list all the imperfections to the best of my ability. Unless stated in the listing I repair most issues needing attention. I never say it's in excellent condition any more. If you look hard enough you will find something. When you are wearing a vintage piece most people will not be on the ground inspecting your hemline for pin holes. Keep that in mind. Each listing has a condition section where i list the issues and give my opinion of how noticeable they are for average wearing conditions. I also let you know what I repaired and how it came out. If you are super super picky you should probably buy new clothes. Just saying.
There are entire books and blogs written on this subject. There were very few fabric content labels on clothing before the 1970s. A lot of vintage was home sewn so no labels there. You have to first determine the fabric if possible. In many cases I have done this for you in the first section of the listing. This is your guide to cleaning. Figure out the fabric then google the cleaning for that fabric or ask me and I'll give you my best idea. In short, don't put your vintage in the washing machine or dryer. I have a hand wash cycle and will occasionally wash sturdy cottons in the washer and line dry. Cleaning vintage does usually require more work but it is always worth the extra trouble.
It's earth friendly.
The fabrics are awesome.
The construction is usually way better than modern clothing.
The design is original.
Everything at the mall is a knock off of something vintage.
Why buy a cheap imitation when you can buy the real deal?
No one else will be wearing your dress at the party.
