VINTAGE PURPLE & WHITE CHECKED LACE-UP CORSET CUMMERBUND DRESS
Unfortunately, there is no mfg tag in the dress but it is a very well made vintage dress - decorative self-covered buttons up the front of the bodice of the dress - i love the small checks on the top of the dress with the larger size on the skirt - makes for a great contrast - checked cord laces through the gold metal grommets on the corset cummerbund which fastens in back with 2 snaps & 3 eyes to adjust - cummerbund at widest point in front is 4” & is 30” long - zipper in back of dress with a hook & cloth eye at top - dress is full lined with a very nice sheer fabric - former owner pinned in shoulder pads which could be removed if you wish - wide cuffs with 2 cloth covered dome buttons for closure - very large 4-½” hem in case one needed to let it down
Just adorable in a beautiful color
By: no tag
Size: 8 but go by the measurements
Bust: 38 - 39 stretched tight but i would not stretch to the maximum
Waist: 26 with no stretch
Fabric: no tag but it feels like cotton or a blend
Care: no tag so ii would hand wash drip dry
Condition: very good - one of the buttons on the front could use tightening - former owner pinned the top button closed & i will leave it & the pin could be taken off if you wish tag
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.
