Oh so unusual and lovely 1960s mint green gown with delicious brown sheer accents, pintucked bust, open back, and train. Fully lined (except for sheer details), back zip and top button closure.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →bust: 32 inches →waist: 30 inches →hips: 38 inches →length: 56.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small to medium, but keep in mind this was likely custom-made to someone's measurements, so there's less wiggle room compared to standard sizing. A smaller bust and fuller hips would be best for this gown.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition with a few flaws, including stains on the bottom front near the slit, and runs in the sheer fabric around the midriff. Presents beautifully and was too unique not to save! Stains may lighten with additional dry cleaning. Please note any light spots on this gown are just the lighting, it is very lustrous and throws back light. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Mint green with chocolate brown sheer accents; this is a hard color to photograph and I'm happy to send more shots.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or content labels. Appears to be handmade as a custom order, likely by a local dressmaker. Appears to be made of a lightweight satin and mesh.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
