VINTAGE MISS ELLIETTE CHIFFON PARTY DRESS ADORNED WITH A HUGE FABRIC ROSE IN DRAGONFLY WITH METAL ZIPPER - 25 FEET OF CHIFFON
found this lovely party dress in a wonderful vintage store in san diego on my last shopping trip & fell in love with the color & the huge fabric rose – so feminine
The color of this vintage party dress by miss elliette is gorgeous in a deep aqua shade called dragonfly – the bodice is draped for a very feminine look adorned with a huge fabric rose & leaves at the waist – i would tack the rose back with a couple of stitches to keep it open as the weight of the fabric makes it droop over – easy fix - the fabric is a chiffon-type fabric with a taffeta lining
The skirt is very full with nearly 300” or nearly 25 feet of chiffon – set-in gussets under the arms - long metal zipper in back – vintage pinked seams – the entire dress is lined
Just a gorgeous shade of dragonfly in this wonderful vintage party dress which would be perfect to wear on a cruise, to a wedding or out to dinner

Size: vintage size 16 but it is in no way a size 16 of today so go by the measurements
Waist: 29 stretched tight
Fabric: no tag but chiffon with a taffeta lining
Care: dry clean
Condition: very good – there is a light run on the bodice which was hard to see because it falls into the draping & no one else would see it either
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.
