Balloon skirt. Back zipper. Vintage Intl. Ladies Garment Union tag inside. Heavily sequined on top of lace with a lining under that.
There is quite a bit of weight to the dress from the fabric and sequins.

By: After Five by Julie Duroche
Size: 10 but sizes have changed in the '70s and this fit my small model who is a Size 6.
Her measurements are: Bust 34.2 Waist: 25.2 Hips: 35.7 so you should be several inches smaller than my model's measurements.
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the dress listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Length: 36 - 37
Fabric: Poly lace & taffeta
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good vintage - Probably sequins missing or lose strands of sequins as there always is in these sequin dresses but there are so many on the dress, they would never be noticed especially at night. The lace has lighted as black lace does over time but if you are wearing the dress at night, I am sure no one could tell.

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.
