EXQUISITE VINTAGE '40s AN ORIGINAL PARNES FEINSTEIN SPARKLING SEQUIN & SOUTACHE TAFFETA COCKTAIL EVENING DRESS WITH METAL ZIPPER
An exquisite and unique vintage 1940s taffeta sparkling sequin and soutache cocktail dress designed by An Original by Parnes Feinstein.
This dress is so striking and it is absolutely beautiful. I wore this dress on a cruise for dinner one evening and received so many compliments on it as everyone told me how beautiful it was and I might add they were both men and women.
The color is a lovely steel gray blue with sparkling iridescent sequins "flowers" out of flat soutache braid on the front and back of the dress. The dress has a bit more gray blue than shown in the photos as it was hard to capture the exact shade. I love the asymmetrical curve on one side of the bodice with soutache and sequins. Metal side zipper. Vintage pinked seams.
Absolutely beautiful and would be stunning for any formal affair, an evening out on the town, a cruise or a holiday party.

Size: No tag but I wear a size 8-10 and it fit me but go by the measurements instead of the size.
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: 37 - 38
Length: 41 - 42
Fabric: No tag but taffeta
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - about 1" of the seam under the arm needs a few stitches to pull closed - repair was made by the former owner (not me) on the left side and up a bit close to the sleeve where the zipper is to the left. Not noticeable when wearing because it's close to the underarm. About 1" of has come undone and you might want to take the 1-1/4" that was pulled together by the former owner and re-hand or machine sew it with thread a color closer to the color of the dress or just leave it. (Shown in photos) A few of the soutache braid loops have come undone but only need to be tacked from the inside of the dress to secure. A cleaner could do these small little repairs if you did not want to do them.

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.
