Lovely Vintage Style Pink Lilacs Print Garden Party Tea Dress - 90s Vintage - Quality Rayon Crepe - By Nostalgia

$34.85 $41.00

Beautiful vintage Nostalgia rayon crepe 1990's dress with a gorgeous print of pink lilacs on a black background, this is such a charming dress for any spring/summer event--garden party, wedding, Art Deco party or even the Gatsby Summer Afternoon! This would look beautiful with a pink or black cardigan. The dress has a raised waistline and a faux double front, with a buttoned overlay that makes it appear to be a two layer dress--but without the bulk. Very flattering and feminine and the rayon crepe is just beautiful--they don't make it quite like that anymore!

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:

Bust: 40", wearer's body measurement should be at least 1"-2" smaller than this.
Waist: 34" " " " " "
Hip: 40" " " " " "
Length is 53" from shoulder to hem, mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and 36"-26"-36" which fits well; I feel this dress is most suited to up to about a size 8, possibly a 10 depending on wearer's measurements.
Condition: Excellent vintage, no issues whatsoever that I can see; clean and ready to wear.
