Beautiful 1920’s burnout velvet burgundy fruit and leaf design on a deep dark blue sheer chiffon, two-piece dress. The over-dress can be worn on its own with a slip, making a beautiful formal 1920's dress. The over-dress is sleeveless with low dipping sides, skirt has full length slits up sides with a rosette of the velvet fabric on the left hip. Fabric is tucked and gathered on each side of the dress hips. The under-dress is made up of dark blue silk chiffon and black chiffon, the burnout velvet at the shoulders and an applique of the velvet leaf design on each sleeve. Two layers of ruffles at the cuff. No labels. Both slip on overhead.

Condition: Over-dress is excellent, the under-dress is good/fair. Neither look like they have been worn, but due to storage issues, the under-dress has problems. No issues with the over-dress, chiffon feels sturdy and no holes or issues found. On close inspection there are a couple tiny pulls and two pin holes from a pin, but not noticeable. The back waist looks like it has been tacked down, possibly taken up about an inch or two. As for the under-dress, it is made of a much finer chiffon than the burnout velvet, and would need to be worn with care. There is a dime sized hole on the left sleeve and the front hem is disintegrating due to something on the skirt, probably from storage (skirt is also slightly discolored along this area). The dress could be taken up to deal with the hem, but this chiffon is delicate in general.
