Sorry, this item has sold.

From the 1980s, when a reboot of Victorian and Edwardian style was a major trend, a high-quality gown in jet black velvet. 

  • Rayon velvet with rayon satin lining at mock turtleneck collar, bodice front and cuffs
  • Mock turtleneck
  • Blouson front bodice
  • Puffed long sleeves with functional, satin-covered-button cuffs
  • Defined waist
  • A-line skirt with sweeping, dramatic hem
  • Closes with long back zipper plus three hooks&eyes at collar
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Labels: no manufacturer label remains, only the care, content, and origin tags

Fiber/Care: 100% rayon / dry-clean

Condition: Under certain lighting, there is a slightly burgundy cast to the velvet. See second-to-last photo. This may be the original color (there is no true black, only really dark shades of other colors), or it could be a shift in the dye over time. It does not at all detract, and we don't consider it a flaw as it lends the dress even more of a Victorian "goth" or "vampire" vibe.

*This 80s Does Victorian maxi dress is clean and ready to wear.*
