Vintage 1920's black silk twill dress in stunningly great condition, and in an amazingly large size!

Style: mid-1920s day dress -- probably the first half of the 1920s. Classic 1920s style with a drop waist. Long sleeves. The bodice features a placket with black rose appliques, which snaps along one side to the bodice overlap. There are black buttons along both sides of the overlap. There are matching rose appliques and buttons on the hem of each sleeve. The lace collar looks original to me -- it's a cream color.

Material: I'm 99.99% percent positive the fabric is a silk twill. It has the sheen and texture of silk.

Condition: Stunningly, shockingly great. The ONLY issues are: 1) The rose appliques have faded a bit -- interestlngly, only half of each applique. It's possible they were originally supposed to be this way? The only other idea I've had is that they're made of different materials on one half vs. the other (altho, why?), and the different materials have aged differently. 2) There was probably originally a sash around the (low) waist. There's a bar (as in a hook & bar) sewn at one side of the waistline front, probably to attach this sash. Luckily, the dress looks fab without the sash, and the bar is very small and not noticeable.

- Bust: 52
- Waist: 52
- Hip: 60
** This style should fit loose. I'm an 18 top/20 bottom (about 45" bust, 38" waist, 52" hip) and the dress looks great on me, even if it's a little roomy. It would best suit someone a size or two bigger -- so about a 20 or 22 -- but again, it looks great on my 18/20 size.
