1980's Soft Teal Suede Dress With Genuine Fur Collar and Cuffs Designed by Liz Roberts-Robert Elliot for Bergdorf Goodman
I couldn't turn away from this quality dress as I did see great potential, even though it does have some issues. A good professional suede (suede does show some wear...some spots and soiling) cleaning would do wonders for this garment.....I usually leave this option to the new owner, as many vintage clothing collectors do not use modern day cleaning methods as some feel they are detrimental to the garment....instead of beneficial. The basic suede is sturdy, but is soiled in some areas and a little faded in the shoulder area, most particularly. There is one seam on the hipline (drop waist seam) on the back of the dress which may need to be re-sewn. The fur collar and cuffs are in fine condition. The kick pleat could stand to have a touch up---possibly an additional stitch....this is often the case with kick pleats. As to the inner lining, there are substantial stains to the underarm area....these are limited to the lining only and so not come through to the outer suede. Well, it sounds as if there are enough issues to make this dress unattractive, but, I don't think so....it just needs some TLC and it will be ready for wear once again. The price of this dress does reflect these issues.....if it were perfect, it would be 2-3 times more! If you have any further questions about condition, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer any concerns.
