From Catseye Vintage is this gorgeous deep black Silk Peau de Soie Slipper Satin drop waist flapper dress embellished with hand beading, faux pearls and embroidery. Circa 1920s ~ a rare size large to extra large.

Please take a look at the enlarged versions of the photographs to get an idea of the beauty and workmanship of this lovely dress.

This is a beautiful dress - the fabric is a gorgeous medium weight deep black Silk Peau de Soie Slipper Satin with appliqued silk chiffon roses and front and back "v" chevrons and a bottom front band as pictured. The roses are accented with hand done faux pearls and beading, again, as pictured. The rose appliques, chevrons and bottom front band are outlined and accented with embroidery done with beautiful metallic gold thread with additional accents of gold tone beads as pictured. The back of the dress is sold black with no embellishments.

The shoulders are lightly gathered with decorative smocking as pictured. The front "v" neckline has self-fabric piping. Dropped waist and side panels (paniers) which create an inverted "v" shape to the skirt as pictured.

The bodice of the dress has a nude color silk chiffon chemise type lining (attached at the waist) which matches the appliques. The lining is visible at the neckline as pictured. Please note the chemise lining has shoulder straps which pull the waist of the dress up to form the pictured blousonshape. If the lining were removed (or left in place but not used) the dress would fall in a straight shape.

The skirt is unlined.

Pull on style with no zippers or buttons.

Designer Label - None. Appears to have been professionally made.


Vintage Excellent ~ There are no odors, discoloration, fading, snags, picks, holes, stains, rips, missing beadwork or faux pearls, or other issues. The metallic gold embroidery work and beads are in wonderful condition with no tarnishing or other issues. There are a few scattered pinholes and a small pink mark in the silk chiffon lining which are not visible as they are covered by the outer dress.

I have not had the dress cleaned.

There are no size tags. Based on the measurements below, I'd say this would best fit a modern size Large to Extra Large (XL) depending on how you like your fit.

Please note the dress is clipped to fit my size 0-2 mannequin and will fall better and not be as low in the neckline on the proper size body.

MEASUREMENTS - Taken Laying Flat:

Bust: 42"

Waist: 44"

Hips: 54"

Skirt Bottom Sweep: 114" Around

Bodice Length: 22-1/2" ~ Top of Shoulder to Dropped Waist

Skirt Length: 21-1/4" ~ Dropped Waist to Hem (includes 1/2" waist band)

A gorgeous dress perfect for any special occasion or party.
