This exceptionally sheer black dress is made of delicate silk chiffon. And early 1920s style, it has a straight fit, with a the skirt attached just above the natural waist - but with no definition there. Three bands with five rows each of woven silk ribbon trim the skirt. The skirt has a center front vent. There is banded ribbon to match the skirt on each of the full length sleeves. The look is finished with a delicate collar of machine made lace.

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

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

Bust: 42"
Waist: 42"
Hips: 43"
Length: 46"

Condition: Very Good
At some time in the past, a previous owner found the garment difficult to get on over one's head, and they cut a slit into the neckline, and added a hook and eye at the lace collar. We have finished the opening, and it looks as though it was intended to be that way. The dress is clean and free of marks. I find no other issues to note!
