VINTAGE '70s A. J. BARI RED FLORAL HALTER DRESS WITH A “T” BACK & ATTACHED CRINOLINE
This adorable vintage halter dress by A.J. Bari is in a myriad of jewel-tone colors of spring green, white, midnight deep blue and orchid on a red background.
Heavy expensive cotton fabric as one always gets when you have an A.J. Bari dress. Very similar to a polished cotton. It is not the lightweight cotton that is in most dresses sold at stores nowadays.
Mandarin collar around the halter neckline which fastens with 2 self-covered buttons with cloth loops. Princess seaming in the bodice front for a slimming look. The bodice is fully lined in a taffeta-like fabric with no raw seams showing. Two pocket in skirt in side seam. Side zipper. Grand sweep full circle skirt with an attached 3-tier soft net crinoline under that. The inside hemline of the full skirt has a row of horsehair to give the skirt shaping which one never sees in clothes manufactured in today's world.
Watch all the heads turn when you walk in wearing this knockout vintage halter party dress by A. J. Bari.

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.
