By: No label but the RN # is registered to Alfred Angelo
Size: 7/8 but that is vintage sizing so go by the measurements
Bust: 40 but leave several inches for movement as taffeta does not stretch
Sleeve from neck: 28
Waist: 29 with no stretch
Hips: 36 but in order to be able to wear this, your hip measurement must be several inches smaller as the taffeta lining does not stretch
Fabric: No tag but lace & taffeta out of poly & rayon
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - a few imperfections: A tiny bit of soiling on the lace trim on 1 sleeve with a bit more on the upper inside sleeve which is hard to see, a double pinprick beginning of a hold on the longest tail of the bow in back which I nearly missed, a few small spots on the lining close to the hemline but cannot see them with the lace over the top of it - all very minor imperfections and a cleaning could probably remove the tiny spots which no one would notice even if he did not. Although I did not see any there might be some loose or missing beads but there are tons of sequins and pearls there so it's hard to tell.

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.
