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.
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: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
