SOLD Beautiful vintage new-with-tags rayon crepe 1990's bias-cut dress with a definite feeling of the 1930's, this is such a charming dress for any summertime event--garden party, wedding, Art Deco party or the Gatsby Summer Afternoon! Gorgeous pale lilac and white vintage-style print that has little glimmery AB sequins scattered over the upper half of the dress, giving it a subtle glimmer. Very easy fit since it's cut completely on the bias; this is meant for a little bit curvier figure than my mannequin---marked an M (see measurements below) Lovely fluted bias ruffles around the hem and the V-neck; has cap sleeves. So summery and perfect!

IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties!

Though marked a vintage M, please go by the measurements below!
(This is entirely cut on the bias so the fabric is very "stretchy" and can accommodate a range of measurements. My mannequin is too thin for this particular dress and I feel it needs a more curvy figure to look best!)
Bust: stretches to about 38"
Hip: stretches to about 40"
Length is 57" from shoulder to hem, but the ruffled hem is probably supposed to be about ankle length and will fit and hang properly/higher on a real human rather than this mannequin. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6; I feel this dress is most suited to about a size 8/10.
Condition: Vintage new with tags, no issues whatsoever that I can see; clean and ready to wear. Pulls on over the head, no fasteners.

Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
Do check my other listings for more gorgeous vintage and antique clothing including many more silk 70's and 80's designer pieces coming up very soon, as well as my own very popular antique-style hats, accessories & vintage/antique china and decor items.....I try to list new items at least weekly....Thanks for visiting!
