BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE SATIN EMBROIDERED CUT WORK EVENING GOWN ADORNED WITH PEARLS & SEQUINS IN SAPPHIRE - SIZE LARGE
A beautiful satin cut work evening in a striking shade of sapphire
The sapphire has a tint of purple in it which makes it an extra special color - the color of the sapphire is not as bright as shown in the closeup of the bodice - more subdued - satin piping around the top of the bodice - embroidered cutwork over the entire evening gown studded with royal blue seed pearls, round pearls & sequins for a fabulous look
The bottom of top has more embroidered scalloped cut work for the hemline - the lovely sleeves have no lining so one can see an arm outline through the cutwork
Long zipper on back of top with hook & eye - lined in satin - cut work embroidered skirt is equally as beautiful & also lined in matching satin & studded with pearls & sequins - satin waistband - zipper in back with slide hook - kick pleat in back of skirt for ease in walking - beautiful scalloped embroidered hemline on the skirt as well as on the top
Just a gorgeous vintage evening gown adorned with pearls, sequins & embroidery perfect for any formal occasion, a cruise or mother of the bride

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.
