1928….Magnolia Hall…Natchez Mississippi…
Mrs. Councillor-Nugent floats in, in a whirl of ruffles and flourishes for Mint Juleps in the tea garden….

It flows....it waltzes.....it's light as a feather....

Upon a creamy white ground of light pink dotted sheer organdy, are sprays of bright pink roses and green leaves…. (picture shows redder)
Ruffled sailor-type collar ending at waist seam, rounded in back…
Row of ruffles across front hipline seam…
8 Godets, each bordered with ruffles…

Dress is in pristine wearable condition for its age with no obvious rips, tears, stains!
Dress has been freshly washed and ironed...

INCLUDES: white silk slip to be custom made at $85 (included in price change)
To fit bust of 36" and hip of 36" as per customer's approval.



Measurements as follow and do keep in mind that exact measurements are a guideline…Room for fit - ease - must be allowed for, so best to deduct an inch or two.

Bust - 37” taken at underarm
Waist - 32”
Hip – 40” – 8” down from waist
Neck to Waist Seam – 14 ½”
Neck to Hem Length – 44”
Sweep – 90”
All ruffles are 2 ½” long

The best that I can date this dress is late 1920’s to early 1930’s as it has no label and may have been custom made.

There is no zipper or buttons on the dress so it must be slipped on over the head…

Slip must be worn with this dress due to sheerness….white or crème would look best.

Please convo me if you are interested in having a basic slip/liner made which could be in either cotton or silk.
