This is an absolutely stunning vintage prom dress from the 1980s that was made by Alyce Designs. The dress is made out of a shiny taffeta that is light blue. The bodice is lined in a second layer of taffeta, and the skirt is lined in white tulle netting. The bodice has a gathered design and a huge bow accent covering one side of the chest. The dress has a fitted waist and a full skirt.
The dress has a single spaghetti strap, and there is boning in the bodice for support. The dress closes with a zipper down the back. The tag labels this a size 16, but vintage sizes tend to run smaller than modern sizes. I believe this dress is closer to a modern size 10 (Medium).The actual measurements are as follows. Inches across, underarm to underarm 37 inches around. I took this measurement with the material pulled taught. Waist: 14 inches across (28 inches around) Hips: Full and roomy Length: 56 inches from the top of the strap to the hem; 49 inches from the underarm to the hem. 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 couple minor scuff marks on the skirt near the bottom (see pictures for examples). I also noticed a slight bit of powdery residue in the underarm area. These are minor flaws that shouldn't really be noticeable when the dress is worn! 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!
