VINTAGE J. BENJAMIN SPARKLING SEQUIN COCKTAIL OUTFIT WITH HUGE FABRIC ROSE IN KAHLUA
The color is a neutral shade of taupe with some deep champagne - there is twisted ribbon, thin cording & sequins on netting on the jacket - the jacket is lined except for the sleeves which are sheer which make them very pretty with the sequins on them - the jacket is fairly heavy because of the lining, ribbon, etc. - the large decorative rose on the jacket is out of the same color crepe as the skirt along with the jacket fabric with the cording, sequins & netting - the ends of the sleeves have crepe piping on them which matches the rose & the skirt - large snaps & a hook & eye for closure on the jacket - shoulder pads in the jacket which can be removed if you wish - the color of the outfit is closest to the photo of the closeup of the rose
The fully lined skirt is in crepe with a zipper in back - there is elastic starting at the side of the skirt waistband which continues to the back for a perfect fit - slide hook in the back above the zipper for closure - small kickpleat in back
A very lovely cocktail outfit adorned with a fabric & sequin rose for your next formal affair, cocktails, a cruise, mother of the bride or groom or vacation

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.
