VINTAGE '50s / '60s PLEATED PARTY DRESS WITH BOW BELT IN LEMONADE
A very cute '50s / '60s cocktail or pleated party dress in a shade called Lemonade.
I love the pleated skirt and the pretty chiffon like bow on the belt. Fully lined except for the sleeves. There is a long zipper in back with a hook & eye.
The belt fastens in back by slipping through the buckle. There is faint writing on the inside of the belt that says "15/16" which I am sure is referring to the size but that is old sizing and the dress is not near any where that size and is more like a size small.
Lined in a heavy taffeta-like fabric. Vintage pinked seams. Pretty lettuce leaf hem which is curly & so cute. Self covered button on the end of each sleeve.
Perfect for going out or for a party in a very shade called Lemonade.
By: No tags
Size: No tags so go by the measurements
Sleeve length from neck to end of sleeve: 28-1/2
Shoulder to shoulder in back: 15-1/2
Fabric: No tags
Care: No tags so I would dry clean.
Condition: Very good - I would have the cleaners press the pleats as some have become crushed over the years. There is a small run at the end of one of the sleeves but no one would ever notice it.
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
