VINTAGE IVORY EMBROIDERED LACE EVENING GOWN IN INNOCENT IVORY - ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS SCALLOPED LACE HEM
A beautiful vintage embroidered floral lace dress with an exquisite scalloped hem.
The ivory cream evening gown is so lovely with a sheer net-type fabric which is adorned with flowers, leaves and swirls over a heavy cream colored taffeta skirt. Inverted "V" on the lace and taffeta bodice of the evening gown. The dress is completely lined with the bodice having a double taffeta lining in front from the facings which extend down over the inside bodice to give it shaping. Flattering gently curved scoop neckline with spaghetti straps. 13" long zipper in back. Thread loops on the side. A double faced satin ribbon could be added to tie in front and would look perfect on the evening gown.
Vintage light cardboard tag inside which states "Lot number, size, order #, style and presser." There is also a vintage International Ladies Garment Workers Union tag inside. On the underside tag written in pen, it says "Size 10 Purchase $75.00" If the dress was $75 in the '70s, the cost in 2018 would be $487.13 according to U.S. Government Inflation Rate Calculator.
Perfect for a wedding gown, a black tie event, a cruise, renewing vows wedding, or mother of the bride or groom.
By: Tag has been removed but it was made in the U.S.A. as stated on a tag
Size: 10 but this is a vintage size 10 and it was on my size 6 model and I could not zip it up in back so go by the measurements for a good fit. It is definitely not today's size 10 but meant for a very small person.

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.
