Tagged a size vintage size 16. Fit is more like a modern size Large. Bodice is lined in a second layer of taffeta; skirt is unlined. This is a gorgeous vintage formal gown from the 1980s.The dress is made out of a dark purple taffeta that has a lovely sheen in the light, and it has a floral brocade design. The dress has a fitted waist and a full skirt. The dress has long sleeves, and it 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 would best fit a modern size Large.The actual measurements are as follows. 21 inches across, underarm to underarm (42 inches around) Sleeves: 24 inches from the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve Waist: 15 inches across (30 inches around) Hips: Full and roomy Length: 58 inches. 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 excellent vintage condition with no flaws to note.

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!
