GORGEOUS VINTAGE WATTERS & WATTERS GRAND SWEEP BRONZE ORGANZA & TAFFETA EVENING BALL GOWN WITH PICTURE COLLAR
A gorgeous vintage evening gown by Watters and Watters. They always made the most beautiful evening gowns in the past.
The evening gown is is very full in beautiful bronze sheer crisp organza. The color is lovely in a bronze with a touch of green in it. There is a lovely sheen to the fabric as organza has.
The evening gown has a gorgeous picture collar which one rarely sees nowadays. It extends around to the back and is quite wide at 7-1/2". One side of the gown laps over the other and there is a snap, 2 small buttons and button holes and one slide hook for closure. At one time there were 2 slide hooks but only 1/2 of of the hook is there. That could be easily replace as they sell them at the fabric store.
There are 3 sparkling aurora borealis rhinestone buttons at the waist on an permanently attached belt with loops for plenty of glamour. The double organza sleeves have ruching at the ends. The lining under the organza is very heavy taffeta and matches the organza beautifully. The grand sweep bias cut skirt is 320" or 26-1/2 Feet of Swirling Fabric!
Just beautiful as one would expect from Watters and Watters. One does not see evening gowns like this anymore.
A very unique gorgeous vintage evening gown perfect for and formal occasion, holiday parties, New Year's Eve, red carpet affairs and mother of the bride or groom when you want to look gorgeous and be the belle of the ball.

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.
