*BEAUTIFUL BILL LEVKOFF RUCHED WEDDING CAKE LOOK EVENING GOWN BALL GOWN IN FRENCH BORDEAUX - PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS
The color is so pretty in a iridescent burgundy wine shade called french bordeaux
the fabric is taffeta with a wonderful rustle sound to it when one walks - wonderful very flattering halter style - lots of ruching on the skirt which forms tierred layers with a black double sided satin ribbon to encircle the waist - tiny straps - former owner added some bra cups so an extra bra does not have to be worn with the dress - the bra cups could be removed if you wanted as there are also cups in between the outer fabric & lining that the mfg has added
The evening gown is shown with a marabou jacket which is under "coats furs wraps"
Invisible back zipper - bottom of the gown is a balloon type with the hem turned under & attached to the lining - under that is an attached black 2-tier net crinoline to give the evening gown fullness - very full with lots of fabric
A very full gorgeous color evening gown by Bill Levkoff which would be beautiful for a cruise, the holidays or any formal event

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.
