Just stunning 1960/70s with a bit of 40s flair full-length gown featuring a high, ruched neck, embroidery details at the bust, empire waist and a handkerchief hem. All the elegance of an older gown with the easier wear and care of a newer one! Unlined, back zip, hook and eye closures.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) shoulder to shoulder: 13 inches | bust: 30 inches | waist: 25 inches | hips: 34 inches | length: about 50 inches (uneven due to hemline) | sleeve length: 21.5 inches | collar: 13 inches around
ESTIMATED SIZE: XX-Small to X-Small
CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with some tiny pulls, but no significant flaws to note. 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: Burnt orange, leaning toward the copper side. A bit more muted in person.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label besides custom-made notes at hem. Appears to be made of a lightweight polyester. Dry clean is best, but hand wash by an experienced vintage caretaker is just fine, too.
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.
