*VINTAGE MISS ELLIETTE BELMAN DIAMOND'S PIQUE DRESS ADORNED WITH EMBROIDERY AND APPLIQUES WITH A METAL ZIPPER
A vintage Miss Elliette pique dress adorned with elaborate red embroidery and navy and white dot applique flowers.
Miss Elliette was always known for their lovely evening gowns and this one is so unique. The color is an off white and possibly may become whiter after a cleaning.
There is beautiful red embroidery on the bodice and hemline of the dress as well as puffy navy and white dot 3-D flowers. 5 self-covered buttons up the front. 2 pockets on the front of the dress. Thread loops and matching belt. The pique is a heavier fabric with a bodice lined in a silky fabric. Vintage metal zipper up the back. The dress still has the old cardboard-type tag under the mfg tab showing size, style & RN #. Beautiful silver cloth 2-1/4" x 3" label in the back of the dress which says "Belman Diamond's - probably the store label.
Perfect for a garden party, a dance or vacation.

Size: 8 but this is vintage sizing so go by the measurements for a good fit
Approximate Measurements – This means the measurements of the item listed – not of your own figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Fabric: Cotton Pique with a bodice silky lining
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - A spot which measures appx. 1" across by 1/2" vertically on the lower back skirt which looks possibly a rust spot & a lighter one close to it - I cannot guarantee that it will come out but there are products on the market that can be used on dry cleanable clothing but have never used them - soiling on the hemline & also a section near the spot which is shown with a pen at the bottom of the section and it goes upward - this probably will come out with a cleaning - would suggest always cleaning an item before wearing - price has been reduced for the imperfections
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.
