* VINTAGE THE VESTED GENTRESS BUTTONS AND BOWS HAND SCREEN PRINT SIGNATURE SHIFT DRESS
A cute vintage novelty shift dress with large bows and buttons scattered over the dress along with the initials of the designer "VG".
The dress is fully lined with vintage pinked seams. Long 22" zipper in back. Piping on the dress to match the color of the bows. Beautiful fabric and colors. The color that is the closest to the true shade is the close up photo of the hem. Could be worn as a comfortable shift dress or use a belt. I added a small white cord belt since there were loops but a thin white leather belt might be nice if you wear belts.

Size: The tag says size 14 but that is old vintage sizing so go by the measurements for a good fit.
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: 40 - 41 but leave some room for movement
Shoulder to shoulder in back: Cannot measure because of the way the sleeves were cut
Waist: 40 leave room for movement as fabric will not stretch
Length: 37 - 38
Fabric: Poly and cotton
Condition: Very good with some alterations made by the former owner who added a "cap" to the sleeves but it looks from what I can tell that the part that was added could be removed to make it sleeveless again. (Photo 4) Hem was shortened and cut off. She just turned up the raw hem after that and did a quick running stitch. (Shown in photo 5) I would probably re-hem it or have the cleaners do it. You can't tell anything wrong from the outside of the dress only when you look at the hem from the inside.

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.
