HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ABOUT VERA FROM THE VINTAGE FASHION GUILD SITE & MY THANKS TO THEM FOR PROVIDING THIS VALUABLE INFORMATION:
Vera Neumann (1907-1993), primarily a scarf designer, was a wonderful colorist with great graphic style. She signed her textiles Vera. Her fabrics are also seen in blouses and dresses from the 1960s and 1970s, using silk as well as cotton. Vera also designed textiles for the home, such as napkins and tablecloths. The Vera label is seen starting about 1947.
THIS IS A VERY RARE ITEM AS VERA RARELY MADE CLOTHES - SHE IS MOSTLY KNOWN FOR HER BEAUTIFUL SCARVES BUT ALSO FOR SHEETS, PILLOW CASES, PLACE MATS & NAPKINS
THE DRESS IS HEAVY COTTON WITH A LINENY FEEL TO IT - THE COLORS ARE CLEAR & BRIGHT IN TURQUOISE & LIME WITH BLACK ACCENTS - LIME PIPING AROUND THE V FRONT & BACK & THE ARMHOLES - SMALL SLITS ON BOTH LOWER SIDES OF THE DRESS
VERA'S FAMOUS LOGO OF THE TINY LADY BUG ON THE LOWER LEFT ON THE DRESS - THE LADY BUG WAS THE LOGO PUT ON VERA'S FIRST ITEMS THAT WERE MADE & LATER DISAPPEARED FROM HER ITEMS - THE LABEL ON THE DRESS IS IDENTICAL TO THE LATE ‘60s / EARLY 70s LABEL ON THE VINTAGE FASHION GUILD SITE.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be NEW, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. Please remember that unless specified that the item is new, all items have been used and will show varying signs of use/wear. I may miss a small imperfection but we always list the obvious ones to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing/using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I DEFINITELY would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
