VINTAGE BARI JAY FASHIONS STRAPLESS BLACK VELVET & ROYAL BLUE SATIN EVENING GOWN WITH ATTACHED CRINOLINE - LARGER SIZE
A lovely vintage strapless black velvet & royal blue satin evening gown with an attached crinoline by bari-jay fashions
The color combination is just beautiful & so striking with the rich black velvet bodice & the royal blue satin skirt - i love the deep “v” on the front of the gown - lowered front of bodice travels down to a “v” with royal blue piping surround it - very full heavy satin skirt with a circumference of 290“ of 24-¼ feet - bodice is lined with stays front & back
The dress was photographed with a hoop crinoline to show how full the dress is but is not included - there is an attached black net crinoline for some fullness on the dress - back zipper - double blue satin bow with a smaller black velvet bow on top of that
Just a striking vintage strapless party dress perfect for the holidays & other occasions

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.
