GLAMOROUS VINTAGE 1960s SPARKLING SILVER LUREX LAME & NAVY KNIT EVENING GOWN
A beautiful vintage silver lame and navy knit evening gown. Very rare to see an evening gown out of a knit evening gown.
If you love knits and get cold like I do in the winter, you will love this one. Wide sparkling silver lame trims the "V" neck and armholes as well as the horizontal stripes on the bodice with a flap of silver lame on the lowered waist. The back is identical to the front with another lowered "V". A fine heavy knit flared skirt completes the gorgeous gown.
The silver sweater is just for illustration and is not included with the dress. It can be found under the category of "Sweaters."
Just a beautiful vintage knit evening gown for formal occasions or holiday parties.

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.
Size: No tag
Bust: 30 - 40 stretched tight
Waist: 24 - 35 stretched tight
Hips: 39 - 40
Length: 56 - 57
Fabric: No tag but a knit
Care: No tag so I would dry clean
Condition: Very good - when I held the skirt up to the light, I could see some holes in the skirt closer to the hem area - the largest 2 were eraser size with the others being smaller scattered over the skirt - they would be easy to fix with a needle & thread & just need to be pulled together or put a small piece of navy cloth under the 2 larger ones - no one can see them when looking at the dress because the dress is dark navy & they are close to the bottom - price has been adjusted for that

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.
