Gothic 1980’s in a style that’s mob hit flapper meets midnight sailor girl. Dark, black, velvet dress as bewitching as one in a Tim Burton film, with the lace sticking out dramatically. It's not a Gunne or Laura Ashley (it's American) but is reminiscent of Ashley's styles, as well as some of the Flapper revival, Carriage House dresses Gunne Sax did. American made, US size 7 / 8. Beautiful dress that fits in many places – steampunk gatherings, garden parties, weddings, luncheons, dances, career / office, and cotillions. So Rare.

Details on this 1980’s American Velvet & Lace dress….

Union made in the USA for the designer Betsy’s Things. Even has ILGWU union label inside.

Condition – Pre-used vintage dress. Lace is in beautiful condition with no tears, no stains, seen on lace. Velvet also looks very rich & nice with no tears or stains either. The bow has wear – double click images to zoom in – the edge of the bow has a raw cut that goes with the gothic look and bow has minor wear & marks so not for the perfectionsist although owner may replace bow if that’s wished, or even cover it with lace, but I"m being picky now. Overall a beautiful dress in beautiful condition with any other flaw being minor & expected of great vintage.

Tag states to dry clean.
1980’s – still has shoulder pads in it.
A very rare dress.
