VINTAGE ‘50s CAROL CRAIG LACE FLOUNCE COCKTAIL DRESS WITH SPARKLING RHINESTONE BUTTONS & METAL ZIPPER IN ROSE DUST
A vintage ‘50s lace cocktail dress in a beautiful shade of mauve called rose dust
Jewel neckline with 4 large metal rhinestone buttons on the shoulder of one side- mauve lace over a light peach taffeta lining - sheer lace trumpet sleeves with scalloped edges - slimming princess seaming on the front & back
I love the gathered lace flounce on the bottom of the dress that starts in the front & continues around to the back where there is a lot of fullness of the lace - long metal zipper in back
Just a gorgeous shade of mauve in this vintage ‘50s lace cocktail dress by carol craig - perfect for an informal wedding, for cocktails, a cruise or any formal affair

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.
