Description

This lovely dress most likely dates from the middle 1920's. The waist on the dress falls slightly below the natural waist of the body. The waist is also wider than the bust, and the dress is loose fitting. The skirt has gathers on both sides of it at the waistline.

The fabric is a floral damask. The dress might look blotchy or even striped in some of the photos. This effect is due to the fact that the leaves are lighter than the background. The leaf design also has a shiny or glossy outline.

The dress is in good and wearable condition:

1) The color is even and unfaded. Any variation from one photo to the other is due to lighting.

2) The fabric is clean and free of holes, spots, tears, bad smells, or perspiration damage.

3) The hem is free of dirt, water damage, or frayed edges.

4) There is a 1" by 1/2" repair on the right front skirt at the hem and a 1/2" by 1/2" one on the back of the bodice at the waist. These are obscured by the woven pattern and aren't noticeable to the casual observer.

All measurements are taken while the dress is lying flat on a table:

1) The bust is 18" (36").
2) The waist is 20" (40").
3) The hips are 25 1/2" (51").
4) The length of the bodice from the top of the shoulder to the hem is 16 1/2".
5) The total length from the top of the shoulder to the hem is 40".
6) The width of the shoulders on the back of the bodice is 16".
