GORGEOUS VINTAGE BLACK VELVET & NUDE LACE EVENING GOWN ENCRUSTED WITH SPARKLING SEQUINS & BEADS - METAL ZIPPER - PERFECT FOR A CHRISTMAS PARTY
An absolutely gorgeous vintage evening gown in black velvet with a nude soutache lace & sequin midriff
Encrusted with irridescent sequins & silver beads on scalloped lace over nude - the nude contrasting lace midriff together with the black velvet will whittle your waist down to nothing - the back is just as beautiful as the front & has a metal zipper - lined
Size: tag inside says “8” but that is vintage so go by the measurements
Bust: 34 - maybe 36 stretched tight
Waist: 26-1/2 unstretched
Hips: 51 but leave plenty of room for movement
Fabric: no tag but velvet
Care: no tag so dry clean
Condition: very good - zipper is a bit slow going up & down but does work - needs some graphite to make it go smoother or take a pencil & rub the lead on the zipper - i do not have one or i would do it - the “hooks“ part of 2 hooks & eyes need to be replace as the cloth “hooks“ are gone - part of the hem is out & the cleaner can fix that - all easy fixes
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.
