Both of these manufacturers always made the most beautiful evening gowns and party dresses, This one is no exception!
White pleated taffeta ruffles around the top of the dress & down the front of the bodice where it meets a huge white taffeta sash with a bow. There is an artificial flower at the top of the dress for interest. Skinny spaghetti straps. 2 pockets in side seams. Taffeta lining in bodice of dress. Zipper in back with a hook & eye for closure. Grosgrain ribbon inside with a hook & eye to pull you in so it is easier to zip up. Light netting inside the skirt for structure.
Perfect for a party, cocktails, vacation, cruise or evening out this summer!

Fabric: No tag but a heavier expensive fabric as Lillie Rubin & A J Bari always used
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - 1 thin interior strap to hold dress on hanger has come undone & a few stitches will secure it - there may have been an adjustment in the back of the dress on the sides of the zipper where someone may have taken it in but it is hard to tell if that was done or if that is how the dress was made. I actually think that is how the dress was made.

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.
