A vintage red and white plaid evening gown with a red satin ruched cummberbund. It is adorned with 17 red plastic buttons with a faux pearl in the center. Long zipper down the back. Originally there was a hook and eye but only the eye is left. Easy fix. The dress is lightly pleated and was probably pleated even more when new but the pleats have loosened up and are not tight like they probably were originally. The cleaner might possibly be able to put them back in but it still looks good even if you did not do that.

The hem has been finished by machine with red thread and it has a scalloped lettuce leaf like hem to it.
Vintage pink seams in the off white taffeta lining.

Very cute and unique for a spring or summer event!

Bust: 34 - 35 but no more

Length: 55 - 56
Fabric: No tag but semi-sheer red and off white overskirt with an off white/ivory taffeta lining.
Care: No tag
Condition: Very good with some imperfections -There is a some color loss on the right hand shoulder bodice area which I nearly missed which is barely noticeably because of the plaid print. (the arrows depict the AREA where there is color loss not just the spots) They probably would never be noticed at night when one would be wearing the dress. There are tiny pinhead and double pinhead dots of soiling on a lower (towards the hem and up a few inches) side panel of the lining and some larger but they cannot be seen with the red and white fabric over it. (photo) Possibly will come out with a cleaning but I do not know that for sure but they cannot be seen just the same. Store mark on the inside lining at neck area. (photo). The dress price has been lowered for the imperfections.

Care Instructions

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. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.  In that case, we do allow one exchange or a store credit on any item that you want. There are about 2,000 items in the store and more are being added all the time so you have a large selection to choose from.

You must email before returning an item so I can give you the information that you need to exchange the item.

International customer have 14 days to contact Midnight Glamour about returning an item if they should want to.  International customers may have to pay be additional customs and import taxes and there maybe unforeseen customs delays. The seller is not responsible for these delays nor for the custom charges as that is the international customer's obligation when purchasing an item outside your country.
