1920s Silk Chiffon Bias Cut Day Dress
Bust: 22" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Bodice: approx 18 from shoulder to dropped waist
Skirt: approx 33" from the dropped waist to bottom hem
The dress is fully lined with a pink crepe silk that feels like it was hand washed at some point but is strong and stable. The upper bodice is lined in netting. It slips over the head and has an attached waist with a jeweled clasp. Hand rolled edges and hand finished. It is in what I would consider excellent shape with no real flaws to note. Please remember that pieces of this age will have a natural patina and should not be expected to be absolutely perfect (though this is close)! It is after all almost 100 years old!
Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
