Mike Benet Formal 60's 70's Gown
This is an absolutely beautiful floor length gown made by Mike Benet Formals. Lovely shade of yellow with a white fitted bodice. The bodice has an eyelet pattern and lace trim. The top is so very flattering and feminine, and compliments the skirt perfectly.
This dress would be perfect for a formal event, prom, dance, spring event, or could be used for a costume. It definitely has a late 60's/early 70's hippie/boho feel to it, especially with that sunshine yellow color. I could also see it at Renaissance Faires!
She is in very good to excellent shape for a 50 year old dress!!! I could find no major stains, there are no stains in the armpits, and the eyelet bodice is in great condition - I could not find any tears. The only issues (see photos) are two tears on the seams on the outer skirt. I'm sure it was caught in a heel and ripped. One is about 4" long and the other is about 7.5" long. Since these tears are on the seam, they should not be a major issue to repair. There are also a couple tiny burn holes in the top front of the skirt (see photo), they are maybe 1/16" each. they are hidden in the folds of the skirt, so really aren't a big deal. Other than that, I couldn't find any issues with this dress.
There is no fabric tag, but it feels like chiffon and polyester. Please note there is NO stretch to this dress, so note measurements.
It is dry clean only. Rear metal Talon zip closure.
Please note, it was a little too small for the mannequin (34" bust), which is why the back view is unzipped.
