FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - GLAMOROUS 5 LAYER PINK ORGANZA AND BLACK EVENING GOWN ENCRUSTED WITH "JEWELS" - NEW & NEVER WORN
A gorgeous flowing double layer of silky sheer organza evening gown in a beautiful color combination of black and pale pink. I bought the evening gown for an event but never ended up going so the evening gown is new and has never been worn.
The bodice is loads of tiny pleats on the sweetheart neckline with a waist encrusted with sparkling elongated rhinestone-type "jewels", tiny black beads and clear rounded beads.
The color is a pale baby pink and with the black fabric makes a striking contrast. The pink shade was very hard to photograph so my photos are not good but it is a lovely shade of pink. There are TWO silky sheer layers of off white organza with another 3rd layer under those of pink and ANOTHER layer of pink satin under the previous 3 layers with an attached lining so there are actually 5 layers of fabric in the skirt!
The sweetheart bodice is composed of beautiful curved pleats with an insert of more black fabric encrusted with the "jewels." There is a strapless bra underneath the heavy black satin inside the bodice so another bra is not needed. There is some boning in the bra to help keep the bodice up and in place as well as for shaping.
The back is a lace up style so it can be adjusted to fit several sizes. A double layer of pink satin is under that if you wish or the satin can be folded to the side and/or removed if one wishes skin to show. Lovely feminine French wired curly hemline.
Very glamorous & perfect when attending a wedding, a cruise or any formal affair.
By No tag & I forgot the name of the mfg
Size Labeled a size 14 but I wear a size 10 but go by the measurements for a good fit. Because of the laceup back it can fit various sizes depending on how loose or tight the laceup back is adjusted.
Bust: With the laces pulled tight, bust was 36"' with the laces much looser the bust is 46 so it just depends on how loose or how tight one makes lace up back.
Waist: The same pertains to the waist - the tighter one makes the laces the smaller the waist. I loosened up the laces somewhat and the measurement came to 36" so it can be made looser or tighter depending on one's size. I bought the size 14 because I knew I could make it to fit my size 8/10 as well as a larger size.
Length from underarm: 48
Fabric: Poly Organza - 5 layers of fabric
Care: Dry clean/Hand Wash
Condition: NEW - NEVER WORN
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.
