There doesn't appear to be a tag with the designer's information. I don't know the fabric off hand, but it feels like satin. Also, it needs to be dry cleaned.


My mother wore this dress in the 1970s.

What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, this item is a Boho-style formal satin long-sleeved dress circa 1960s to 1970s embellished with rhinestones, pearl-colored beads and embroidery on the bodice and cuffs of the sleeves.

Value in the vintage dress market is assigned based on a number a variables - designer, year of manufacture, trend, quality of the piece, and type of fabric.

In this case, the designer of the dress and fabric content are unknown, but the composition is assumed to be satin. Because of the “Care Labeling Rule” issued by the Federal Trade Commission in 1972, manufacturers were required to list the piece’s materials and care instructions on attached tags. Therefore it can be assumed that the piece is either a custom, handmade piece, or that the garment’s care tags have been removed.

The garment is assumed to have been worn in the 1970s, and is similar in style to dresses from that time period. The dress seems to have been well-kept, with one loose pearl noted but no tears or stains. Fair market value at a vintage dress shop would be $50 to $100.
