A beautifully made all-over embroidered soft rayon dress from Papillon in a wonderful blush pink/warm dusty rose. Vintage styling with pristine new condition, the embroidery over the entire dress is wonderfully intricate on each section, and the skirt features cascades of rayon georgette ruffles down each front and back seam. Fluttering capelike sleeves and a V-neck, has all the original tags. Be sure to view the video so you can see some of the gorgeous embroidery close up! So soft and pretty---a perfect vintage tea or garden party dress, or even a summer wedding dress or to wear to events like the Gatsby Summer Afternoon.
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! I'm meticulous about clothing in general so I make quite sure that every piece of vintage clothing I sell is clean, fresh, pressed and in excellent wearable condition---I do not use any fragranced or heavily-chemical products in caring for/cleaning garments and they are carefully stored in climate-controlled closets at all times except for when I am photographing them for listings.
