Women's Antique 20s Dress Chiffon Party Wedding Vintage Bride Medium to Large

$ 250.00 Sale Save

A delicate and ethereal vintage 1920s dress with wonderful details, suitable for a wedding dress or other very special occasion! Classic 20s silhouette, straight cut with dropped waist, softened by the delicate lace yoke and vertical pleated panel in front framed by more lace on each side. Three tiny rhinestone center buttons are positioned between the breasts. A softly pleated self fabric belt at the sides and back gives way to narrow ribbon steamers in front, each tied in multiple tiny bows along its length. A large silk chrysanthemum type flower on the left hip provides a lovely accent. Bell sleeves have a deep pleated cuff "ruffle on the inner layer overlaid with a petal effect with the chiffon - exquisite!

FABRIC/COLORS: Outer layer is lighter than air sheer chiffon. Inner layer of feather weight semisheer crepe - nowhere to snip some fabric for a burn test, but I believe it's silk. Color is old ivory. The silk flower is closer to white and the ribbon trims are shell pink and ivory.

TAGS: No tags

CLOSURES: The dress has an unusual closure for the era - a long placket down the back that closes with 4 sets of snaps and a hook & eye at the waistband level.

CONDITION: Underarm watermarks, very slightly discolored, no odor - it's rather subtle and wearable as-is, but if you have an excellent & trustworthy cleaner, they may be able to remove it. I have hand stitched a 1" section of open seam on the inner layer of the right cuff and a 1/2" tear to the front hem of the inner dress layer. Also, two of the three tiny buttons are missing their rhinestones.
