1920s Embroidered Flapper Net Dress

Wonderful and rare cream silk net flapper day dress. It has a fantastic design that includes open cut work lace, phenomenal embroidery work on panels of silk chiffon and all has a subtle 3D quality! People think of the sixties as the era of hippie chic but you can see where it originated when you see dresses like these (I have a few just in so if you love these make sure to check the others!). There is a definite bohemian slant to them that seems very fresh and modern - amazing when you think this is almost 100 years old! The lace work runs around the hem† and through the panels that are intersected by silk netting and the embroidery work is stunning - its 3D in some places with a raised pattern created. The embroidery work is quite extensive - its done by hand so is labour intensive so a piece like this would have been very high quality! I love the even on the seam that runs under each arm - a place were you would not really see it when work - the time has been taken to run a tiny vine of embroidered flowers down it! Amazing! In fabulous condition this one is strong and wearable!
