VINTAGE JESSICA McCLINTOCK VICTORIAN-LOOK BLACK VELVET & CREAM SATIN SEQUIN BUSTLE & TRAIN EVENING GOWN
The back of the evening gown is just gorgeous with a ruched bustle with netting under it & trimmed with wide black velvet - under the bustle a cream satin train with has fullness to it plus more velvet trim - the train makes the hemline somewhat longer in back than in the front for a very elegant & sophisticated look
A large black velvet & cream satin bow sits above the bustle for a very feminine look - long back zipper - stiff stays in the front & back of the bodice to help keep the gown up & also to keep it smooth - attached white crinoline underneath the dress in back to add fullness to the train with a smooth silky black lining in the front

Length from underarm to the hem: 49 in front & longer in back because of the train

Condition: very good - may be a few sequins missing ( i saw missing on a cuff) but if there are, they could easily be replaced as no one would ever notice - some fading to the velvet but not noticeable at night; otherwise, in very good vintage condition
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.
