* VINTAGE NAT KAPLAN COUTURE BEAUTIFUL BLUE FLORAL EVENING GOWN SPRINKLED WITH SPARKLING RHINESTONES
An elegant vintage evening gown by Nat Kaplan Couture sold at I. Magnin in the 1970s. The gown is in a shade of Beautiful Blue (much prettier than the photos) sprinkled with pink flowers and sparkling rhinestones on the front bodice and back. The twinkle from the prong-set vintage rhinestones is fabulous. Rhinestones that are made today do not have the fire in them that vintage rhinestones do.
Belt with loop. Tiny loops pinned in the shoulder area to hold bra straps. Back zipper. On an inside seam it says that the fabric is an "Original Design".
Just gorgeous for a guest at a wedding, for a afternoon tea dance or garden party or a cruise.

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.
