1970s 80s Black Embroidered Ruffle Neckline Evening Gown

The double ruffle around the sweetheart neckline is perfection on this vintage evening gown which can be worn slightly off the shoulder depending on fit and size to your body but either way, the V opens up wide for a lovely portrait style neckline.  The fabric is embroidered and further embellished with ribbon tie clovers throughout.  The skirt is full, hangs slightly longer in the back and has scalloped edges around the hem.  The drop waist is fitted and very flattering.  A real beauty from Neiman Marcus.

Styled with a crystal fringe necklace and 1940s crochet cord lucite handled scalloped bag, both sold separately.

Labels:  Neiman Marcus, Made in England, 

The fabric is poly and rayon/viscose but feels so silky.  Fully lined with finished seams and zips up the rear with a hidden nylon zipper.  The skirt is fashioned with three layers, an inner black silky slip, a middle layer of fine tulle and the outer embroidered scalloped edge skirt.  You could add a crinoline for extra fullness, we photographed it the way it is without adding additional slips or crinolines. Light boning on each side of the bodice.

Condition is excellent
