VINTAGE RIMINI EMERALD SATIN & BLACK VELVET EVENING GOWN - GORGEOUS COLOR COMBINATION!
What a gorgeous color combination in this evening gown by Rimini in Emerald satin and Black velvet!
The color of Emerald is striking with the black velvet skirt. Surplice neckline, long invisible zipper in back, bodice is lined as well as the skirt. The crossover bodice is tacked by a single thread so if you needed to add a bit room to the bust line, you could undo the thread and retack it. High cut arms holes on the evening gown which makes one look youthful. The velvet or velveteen skirt is so soft. One side of the skirt overlaps the other with a long split up the front. It could be tacked closed if you did not like it but I think it adds a lot to the dress.
It is shown in a couple of photos with a huge bow wrap around belt which is not included with the dress but can be purchased under "Belts" in "Accessories".
I can see this at a Christmas party or New Year's. Perfect for any formal occasion, Christmas, New Years Eve, cruises and parties.
By: Ramini - Made in Hong Kong where they do such a good job on tailoring.
Size: 8 but go by the measurements for a good fit - this is not a size 8 dress - that is old sizing.

Waist: 27 - remember that satin & velvet do not stretch
Length: 58 - 59
Fabric: Poly Satin bodice & Acetate Rayon velvet skirt

Condition: Very good - light run on the back of the bodice towards the side seam. I nearly missed it and no one else will see it either as it blended in so well that I nearly miss 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.
