Lot of six 1950's prom dresses.  All of them have damage in varying degrees.  All need cleaning.  You are buying them in "as found condition".  I haven't done a thing to them.  Seems I can never get a shipment of these without damage, but for some reason, I keep buying them!  All of them have metal zippers.

1.  Blue strapless dress with beautiful lace bodice.  It does have stays in the bodice.  Has several faint stains on the bodice.  Has a stain about the size of a silver dollar on the satin skirt lining.  Is missing a 6" x 6" piece of tulle at the hemline, and has several nickel-sized holes in the tulle near the hemline.  The hook-and-eye at the neckline above zipper needs repair.  This dress is larger than the others -- its about a size 6.

2.  Yellow tulle and satin dress.  Has stays in the bodice.  Has several holes and tears in the tulle at the bottom of the dress and is missing a piece of the tulle at the hemline, like someone caught it on something and it tore so they just ripped it  off, so it is jagged at the hemline.  Also, the tulle at the top of the bodice needs to be tucked back under the satin stripe and stitched in.  Its coming undone.  About a size 4.

3.  Red ruffled tulle dress with red velvet decoration.  This gorgeous dress is in good condition, with the exception of the zipper -- it won't go up!  Other than that, I can't find any damages.  This has the ruffled tulle with red velvet stripes running horizontally around the skirt.  Has stays in the bodice and one shoulder drape.  This wouldn't fit on my mannequin (which is about a size 4), so it is size XS.  If you can fix the zipper, this is wearable.

4.  Pale silvery blue tulle dress with pale pink bodice.  This dress has beautiful blue lace on it.  If you can't salvage the dress, the lace is nice for re-purposing.  Has a draped bodice with stays.  The tulle has torn away from the bodice in the front.  There are a couple of areas where the bottom trim on the lace has unraveled.  This is an XS size.

5.  Coral tulle dress with floral decoration at bodice.  Has stays in the bodice.  The label in it reads, "Geralda Pheatt, Inc., Toledo, Ohio".  The floral decoration is a bit flattened.  The tulle at the right shoulder has come unstitched, so it is drooping.  The bottom of the dress is jagged from tears in the tulle.  The second layer of tulle (under the coral tulle) has several holes and tears.  Also, the zipper doesn't go up the last 3 inches -- it just gets hung-up there and I don't want to force it.  Its a well-made dress.  In addition to the metal side zipper, it has nice hook-and-eye closures and snaps so you can't see the zipper.  Size is XS.

6.  Yellow satin and white tulle dress.  This dress is actually strapless.  It is hanging by the little hanging straps in the pictures.  Has a ruched bodice.  Label inside reads, "Ruth Jones - Town and Country" and someone (presumably the original owner) has inked the name "Sally Stiller" on one of the stays.  Sweet.  This dress is actually in good condition.  There is a 5" area in the back where the tulle has come undone -- it isn't torn or missing -- it has just come unstitched, so its just a straight sewing job.  Has a really nice large satin tie in the back.  Has hook-and-eye fasteners to cover the back zipper.  This is also an XS size.  Wearable if you do the little stitch job in the back.

I have packed these tightly in one box to save shipping costs.  You'd have to straighten them out anyway, so why pay more shipping?  The price quoted for shipping (both domestic and international) is the lowest I can find.  Also, for international buyers, I cannot mark your purchases as "gift" on the customs form.  Thank you for understanding.
