Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.

ESTIMATED SIZE: Small, probably best for a petite woman
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with a few tiny pinholes here and there and very faint underarm darkening only visible when closely inspected. Presents beautifully and is quite the stunner. 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: Ivory with champagne appliques
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label. Seems custom-made for its original owner. Appears to be made of a medium-weight acetate. Dry clean only. Please note: I highly recommend steaming or dry cleaning this dress upon arrival to you. The fabric wrinkles extremely easily and I imagine even the most careful packing will leave it with a few creases.
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. Please contact us for bridal & special occasion gowns, as we understand the proper fit is essential.
