Size: no tag
Bust: 35 - 36 stretched hard to measure because of the way the bodice & sleeves are cut
Belt is 30" long & has 2 snaps to snap at 3 places so the tightest it could be is 25" & the largest it could be is a bit of 28"
Fabric: no tag but taffeta
Condition: very good - some tiny pinhead holes on the bodice but no one would notice them at night when you will be wearing the dress - some underarm staining but blends in well & no one could tell at night since your arms will not be up in the air - part of the hem has come undone but that is easy to fix & cleaner can do it - some soiling close on the hemline area but blends in well & will not be noticeable when wearing at night - netting under skirt is ripped in a seam & has been cut up to the hip level by former owner appx but no one will see it & you can add your own crinoline for fullness - price has been adjusted greatly for imperfections
Care: dry clean
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.
