Product Description

From the eclectic estate of a vintage clothing collector, a well-known and stylish lady in Historic Riverside, California -- we acquired over 250 pieces from her collection, all pre-40's, to pass on to other loving new homes. All items were well cared for and have not seen much light in well over 30 years.

Our second item from this Lot is a burnt Orange, almost copper-colored Luscious Velvet Evening Gown (not as red as it appears to be in the photos). Isn't it stunning? And the softest material! Vintage velvet is nothing like modern day velvet- it is almost silk-like, and thin yet sturdy. Notice the fine shirring at the shoulders and the cape-like flutter sleeves with zigzagged edges...a positively vampy dress that will hug your body. And anyone around you will want to hug you!

Snaps at the side have a hook at the middle. There are belt loops to hold a belt in place. Without the belt you will notice additional shirring at front waistline. Top of back has a loop button for a peek-a-boo feature. No label to be found.

* Dress clip shown in photos is NOT included. One was most certainly worn with this dress, as there are a couple tiny pin-holes right where it should go, so it is highly recommended and period accurate. Belt is also not included- we used an Edwardian sash here, but a rhinestoned belt is another great option.

Condition is excellent! No holes or stains, Clean and ready to wear!

Check measurements carefully.

A NOTE to REMEMBER, Disclaimers and Such: IF YOU ARE NEW TO VINTAGE: Welcome! But A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so special. They should be treated with respect and preservation, as they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character! Please don't hang them on wire hangars or wash them like any new item. I suggest gentle soaking in Oxy Clean or dry cleaning. Please take care of your garment.
I do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first! With 9 years experience in selling vintage, you can trust my expertise as I describe it.
