Vintage Aquamarine 1970s Knit Lace Maxi Dress Size XS-S

Regular price $0.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

A gorgeous knit maxi dress with intricate details. Mock neck and long sleeves with elegant flared lace edging at cuffs and at hem. Closure is a row of 10 covered buttons down back. The dress appears to be a paler color in the photographs than it actually is in real life. Best way to describe color is an aqua with a lot of blue in it, will try to find a Pantone# but for now reference the last photo for most accurate color.

***Belt is not included, this listing is for the knit dress only***

Chest 32”-38”

Waist 26”-30”

Hip 35”-44”

Length 57.5”

Armscye 7” flat (14” around)

Sleeve length (w cuff) 24”

Keep in mind that the dress is stretchy but stay within measurements. The length will shrink a little when it’s worn.

No major flaws or holes that I could find. The elastic in the left wrist is broken but that could be easily removed or replaced. Two tiny snags that I found that can be tucked back into the knit with dressmakers pin (I will go ahead and do this for the buyer). The care tag also detached when I cleaned this but no other issues to note.

The craziest most amazing thing about this vintage knit dress is that it indicates on the tag: machine washable. However you still must take necessary precautions bc it is a 50 year old item: I washed it in a zippered mesh bag on the delicate cycle with cold water and then laid it flat to dry and it looks perfect. DO NOT apply any heat to this dress: hot water, dryer, steam or iron will cause damage because it is made from synthetic fibers like nylon.

I would recommend for a size XS to S, probably best for someone 5’5” or taller because of the length.

This sale is final, with no returns or exchanges. Please ask all questions before purchasing this item, I’m happy to provide more information and photographs.
