GORGEOUS $700 DAYMORE COUTURE CHIFFON & HEAVY LACE BODICE EVENING GOWN IN SHIMMERING SAND
A very expensive evening gown by Daymor Couture known for their beautiful evening gowns for cruises, formal affairs or for the mother of the bride - this wonderful company has been in business since 1951 & they make beautiful expensive formal evening wear
I found this identical evening gown on line in a store priced at nearly $700 & it is definitely worth it as it is beautiful - the color of the gown is a light gold in a shade called shimmering sand - the gold shade is much prettier than shown in the photos - there is a heavy cotton lace bodice over a gold silky lining - the shimmering lace bodice hangs free at the bottom - beautiful soft chiffon 8-layered tiered diagonal overlapping skirt which comes up slightly in front so a glimpse of a leg can be seen - invisible zipper in back
By: Daymor Couture - since 1951
Size: 4 but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: 34 - 35 stretched tight
Waist: 28 unstretched
Hips: 37 but leave room for movement so the dress hangs properly
Fabric: poly chiffon & lace
Care: dry clean
Condition: very good - very small light mark on one of the chiffon layers below the knee which i nearly missed because it is down so far & so light - will probably come out with a cleaning - a run in the lower skirt in back which chiffon is prone to which pretty much falls into the folds & no one would probably notice it in back because it down pretty far unless someone was closely examining the dress
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.
