*ON HOLD* 1970s Red & White Gingham Lace-Up Maxi Dress
PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE. This garment is on hold until an additional measurement can be provided for a client. Please check back later today if you’re interested in purchasing or send me an email at email@example.com so I can notify you if it does not work for the client.
Fun and show-stopping 1970s red and white gingham maxi dress featuring a deep v-neckline and lace-up detail, dramatic basque waist, full skirt and cream lace trim. Pairs perfectly with lace-up sandals and a jaunt through the wildflower fields! Unlined, semi-sheer, pullover with lace-up front, no closures.
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Small; measurements read a bit bigger, but since the only closure is the lace-up at the bust, you have to be able to get the garment over your head and bust. The lace-up area can of course be widened and tightened, but it's important to be aware of.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition. This dress appears to have been loved very much but is sturdy and wearable! There are two holes in the skirt: one round moth nibble toward the waist and one small rip toward the hem; I've left both as they disappear in the folds of the fabric, and due to the pattern, closing them may make them more noticeable! I repaired a number of holes to the lace skirt -- seemed like someone was dancing and got their heel caught more than once. There's also some seam stress and seam repairs throughout, particularly at the underarms and the waist -- I imagine this is more from the garment's pullover structure than anything else. Everything is sturdy and easily passes pull tests, but certainly noticeable upon inspection and may warrant some future repair if you love and wear it just as much, too. 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: Red and white gingham; the red is a medium-tone, tomato hue, truest in close-ups (at least on my monitor.)
MORE INFORMATION: By Popi. Appears to be made of cotton and nylon lace. Hand or machine wash.
