Amazing and dazzling vintage lilac purple ballroom dance dress by Mike Benet Formals. The bodice is heavily sequinned and beaded with flowers in dark purple sequins and silver beads. The sleeve cuffs are also sequinned and beaded and have a snap closure on each one. Though the sleeves have cuffs, the sleeves continue to hang below the cuffs to form bell (or angel) sleeves made of chiffon. The very full chiffon skirt is two layers with chiffon over a solid fabric. Dress zips up the back and the bodice is lined. This is an incredible example of a 1960s or 1970s dance dress, perhaps even a dance competition or pageant dress. There are just two flaws, which are a cluster of three (or four) small holes in the top chiffon layer of the skirt on one side (see picture) and a handful of light snags/imperfections on each chiffon sleeve. Otherwise, the dress has no other rips, no stains and no odors.
All items are non-smoking environment.

Since women's sizes vary a great deal amongst the many different clothing manufacturers, please read the measurements on this listing. The measurements provided are of the actual item that is pictured and described. Please compare the measurements provided to your own body measurements or to an item you own that fits comfortably.
HOW TO READ THE MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED
The bust, waist and hip measurements are all provided as circumference around in inches. These numbers are derived from the flat across measurement doubled. When there are two numbers separated by a -, for example 44”-50”, provided as a measurement it indicates the fabric, structure and/or elastic at that spot is stretchy. The first number is the un-stretched measurement. The second number is the maximum stretched measurement.
The length of a garment is measured from the shoulder to the bottom hem; or waistline to bottom hem on a skirt or pants.
The sleeve length is the measurement from the shoulder seam along the top of the sleeve to the bottom hem of the cuff.
The belt length only measures the belt itself and not the buckle sticking out beyond the belt.
A measurement marked as N/A indicates the garment does not cover that part of the body, for example, a short top that doesn't reach the hips will have N/A for the hip measurement.
A measurement marked as Free indicates there is an excess of fabric at that spot making it difficult to take a reliable straight-across measurement, for example the hip measurement on a circle skirt.
All of my measurements conform to this format. Any exceptions to this format will be noted and explained in the listing.
For the best fit I recommend allowing at least two inches over the maximum measurement compared to your measurements. For example, if your waist measures 30”, look for clothing that measures at least 32” for the most comfortable fit. This is only a guideline and is based on a looser fit. Tight-fitting or tailored clothing may be only an inch larger than actual body measurements.
