1920s Remarkable Silk Peach Shift Dress

Day dresses from the twenties are a little harder to find and its surprising that sometime a fabulous day dress can be as valuable and collectible as their over the top, extravagant, evening counterparts! It boils down tot he simple fact that a girl would have worn her day dresses to pieces back then! This was probably a dress that fell in-between the two - it is so beautiful and finely done that it would have been for special day events. Can you not just picture a girl with her flapper bob, kitten heels. little silk clutch and the perfect hat topping her curls, wearing this piece to a Sunday picnic in town? It's really extraordinary. Its slightly more of a tangerine peachy color that what has photoed and the silk is that nice weight creped twill. Strong and still highly wearable! A darling Peter Pan collar tops a row of silk covered peach and black buttons on a cream striping. The body of the dress is classic 20s - almost tubular in design. There is an amazing band of fabric applique all stitched into place with a border of hooked embroidery work. I love that front flat pleated "apron" that entire panel of pleating is actually a separate piece that is attached at the waist so swings and adds extra movement. Excellent condition and just stunning!
