This is a lovely vintage prom dress from the 1980s. It would make a great base for a princess costume!The material is a shiny satin that is a peach color. The dress has short sleeves that puff out a bit at the shoulders. The dress has a fitted bodice with a large bow accent, and the skirt has a full cut. The skirt is longer in the back than in the front. My mannequin is 5'10, and even on her, the skirt dragged on the ground a bit in the back like a mini train. The dress closes with a zipper down the back. There are no size tags on this item, but I believe it would best fit a size Medium. The actual measurements are as follows. 19 inches across, underarm to underarm (38 inches around) Natural Waist: 16 inches across (32 inches around, measured at the narrowest part of the bodice) Drop Waist: 19 inches across (38 inches around, measured at the seam between the bodice and the skirt) Hips: Full and roomy Length: 54 inches from the shoulder to the hem; 60 inches down the back.
These are the actual measurements of the garment, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement. All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around. This dress is in very good vintage condition. I did notice a tiny pinhead hold in the fabric (see picture).
The hole is on the back of the skirt a little below the waist. I really don't think it should be too noticeable when the dress is worn! I only noticed it because I was holding the fabric up to a bright light.
I also have many other items in my store, so check out my other listings! BY PURCHASING, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE FOLLOWING STORE POLICIES. The items in my shop are used and may show minor signs of wear, but I will do my best to describe any flaws that I find. I go to the post office every week day, Monday - Friday. Ive had some customers get their packages in around a week, and for others, it has taken a month.
The large majority of the items in my store are vintage, and therefore pre-owned. I do my best to only put items up for sale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list any major flaws that I notice. However, most vintage clothing has been around for several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric, the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear. Vintage items may also have raw seams that have not been serged. By purchasing, you are accepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect.
However, if you feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know! I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME. I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previous owner. I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing had pets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair I notice.Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been in storage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean your item before wearing it. If for some reason you have a problem, please CONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my best to help you with your concerns!
