SOLD Vintage Khaleegy dress, belly-dance costume, abaya, caftan, sheer dress
I bought this vintage Khaleegy Dress from a theatre where it been used as a stage costume.
A kind Etsy seller shared her knowledge regarding the name of the garment as I am not an expert in this field.
Abaya / Galabeya / Jalabiya / Thob / Maxi Gown / Thebes / Belly Dance Costume
It was made sometime before 1999 but as there are no labels and this is a timeless design classic, I cannot be certain of it’s age
Material: Chiffon ( silk I believe)
Condition - Fair
The neckline needs some work. The embroidery has pulled away from the main fabric.
There are some marks around the hem caused by soaking up water, some tears in the fabric and some of the sequins have fallen off. That makes the dress sound very much more unattractive than it really is. I don’t want anyone to be disappointed when purchasing.
The price of this garment is based on it’s repurposing value. It reflects the value of the decorative panels, which could be re-used, with the original gown sections acting as pattern pieces to cut new panels from.
This item ships from France.
Thanks for looking!
