This vintage 1920s day dress is made of decadently soft navy blue silk. It is a such a fine fabric that, while it is not a chiffon nor intended to be sheer, it is very nearly there when set against the light. It has long, slightly full sleeves, a deep v neckline, and drop waist. The skirt is given a free and breezy fit, thanks to 3 1/2" of smocking along the waist that is the primarily detailing of the dress. The dress is simply, but appealing, and very wearable. Best when paired with a 1920s slip in white, nude, or perhaps a contrasting color. A wonderful early 20s dress for a simple day wear look.

As with all early garments, I have many more photos, including close ups, which are happily provided upon request.

The slip shown is not included.

Please remember to accommodate for the slim, straight fit of the 1920s.

Bust: 38"
Waist: 38"
Hips: 40"
Length: 49.5"

Condition: Very Good
This dress is sturdy and completely wearable. There are a few points where the stitches of the smocking have fallen out, but there are minor. There is one small hole, either a moth chew or snag at the center back, at the level of the drop waist. I find no other issues to note!

Accessories shown are for inspiration only, and are not included.
