VINTAGE CARLYE HEAVY SATIN EVENING GOWN ENCRUSTED WITH HUGE PRONG-SET RHINESTONES WITH MATCHING PIANO FRINGE SHAWL
A vintage evening gown & stole ensemble by carlye in heavy satin encrusted with huge prong-set rhinestones with matching piano fringe shawl
Just a gorgeous evening gown encrusted with sparkling rhinestones with a rare matching stole with long fringe - the colors are pastel so they were hard to photograph at a distance but the colors of the ensemble are closest to the closeups shown & they are beautiful in real life - the colors are a mauve pink, gold, taupe & white
The fabric is a slick heavy smooth satin - almost a bridal satin feel in the gown since the bodice is partially lined with the same luscious fabric & the rest with a silky fabric - the dress is heavy from the satin, linings & rhinestones
There is a set-in bodice encrusted with huge prong-set rhinestones in various sizes & colors of rose, pink, light gold & clear both in the front & the back - the largest rhinestones are 1/3” - ¼” in diameter so they are quite large
The evening gown is completely lined with a long back zipper - there is a slit up the front for ease in walking plus one can get a glimpse of leg which looks very pretty - 3-¼” wide hem in case you need more length - old ladies garment workers tag inside the dress
The piano fringe scarf is quite large & measures 82” long including the 5-½” fringe by 27-½” including the fringe wide at the widest point - the silky smooth fringe is lovely as it has the same colors as the dress in mauve, gold & white
Just a gorgeous one-of-kind vintage evening gown & matching piano fringe stole by carlye ablaze with sparkling pronge-set rhinestones

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.
