This 1920s dress is an absolutely beautiful piece of fashion history. Made of very sheer, deep nude silk chiffon that lets you feel as though you aren't wearing anything at all. Sleeveless with an embroidered floral lace yoke that graces the very tops of the shoulders, extending to the waist of the bodice. a loose yet very flattering fit, with pintucks at either side of the classic low waist. Absolutely exqusite, with long sewn in ties to cinch the waist and tie in the back. A gorgeous drape along the hips and derriere, with godets in the skirt to create an ethereal fullness and gracefulness to the wearer as the move and dance. The handkerchief hem falls below the knee to about mid-calf, with a slightly lower hem in the back which creates a darling silhouette. Perfect for summer events, an excellent conversation piece!
CONDITION - Excellent: Completely sturdy for wear, fabric in exceptional condition. One tiny pinhole under each arm, does not show unless fabric is stretched (see photo), one bit of lace applique has frayed in the back, and one small bit of the hem-stitching unraveled, approximately 1/3". There is also one very faint bit of a patina on the right lower hip, again doesn't show without a closeup (see photo).
