VINTAGE '80S A J BARI SWEETHEART NECKLINE STRAPLESS EVENING GOWN
Glamorous sweetheart neckline which I love with stiff stays in front, sides and back to help keep the dress in place. 25-1/2 split up the front of the skirt for ease in walking. Fully lined. Back zipper.
Beautiful for a Christmas party, cruise or New Year's Eve when you want to look fabulous!
By: A.J. Bari
Size: No tag but this is for a SMALL PERSON
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: 34 - 35
Hips: Measured 7" from the waist 40 (this is NOT your hip size but the dress measurement at the hips so leave several inches for movement as this fabric does not stretch
Length from under arm: 50
Fabric: Poly & Triacetate crepe
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - When pulling up the zipper in back, it sometimes catches on the lining inside so you have to be careful that does not happen because it keeps you from pulling it up all the way. There is a hook & eye at the inside waist area to pull you in before zipping the zipper up. The "eye" needs a few stitches on one side as it has come undone. Easy fix. Some light marks under the arms outside & inside and down a ways towards the waist from deodorant but fairly light. (photo) They should come out when the dress is cleaned but your arm will probably cover it pretty much and will not be noticed at night especially under dimmer lighting.
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.
