The following information is from the Vintage Fashion Guild label resource site and my thanks to them:

"Gunne Sax was a small dress manufacturing company in San Francisco in 1969 when Jessica McClintock invested in the company and became the designer. The company became known for their nostalgic “granny dresses” and soon the look expanded into prairie dresses and Victorian and Edwardian inspired designs in the 1970s and into the early 1980s.

In the 1980s Jessica added southern belle dresses and twenties-inspired dresses. Gunne Sax was a junior line and in the 1980s McClintock added a misses line, Scott McClintock and a more expensive upscale line, Jessica McClintock.

By the end of the 1980s, Gunne Sax became mainly a company that made prom and party dresses that were influenced by the trends of the day. The company is now called Jessica McClintock, Inc.

A beautiful lace, organza and satin dress by Jessica McClintock Gunne Sax in pale ivory.

Huge collar trimmed with a large applique surrounding it with satin bands on the organza.  Dropped waist.   Scalloped lace on the ends of the sleeves as well as the hemline of the dress.  Back zipper.

Perfect for an afternoon tea party, a date for a special event, an informal wedding, a cruise or a garden party!

Care Instructions

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. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.  In that case, we do allow one exchange or a store credit on any item that you want. There are about 2,000 items in the store and more are being added all the time so you have a large selection to choose from.

You must email before returning an item so I can give you the information that you need to exchange the item.

International customer have 14 days to contact Midnight Glamour about returning an item if they should want to.  International customers may have to pay be additional customs and import taxes and there maybe unforeseen customs delays. The seller is not responsible for these delays nor for the custom charges as that is the international customer's obligation when purchasing an item outside your country.
