Riding the line between the flowing organic lines of the Art Nouveau period with the drop waisted styles of the Art Deco period. This elegant dress was clearly made by a woman who felt more comfortable with hand stitching than working on a machine. The entire dress is stitched by hand with the exception of where the organza skirt is attached to the slip, both side seams in the blouse and most of the side seams on the slip itself. I believe this was fitted to the original bride on one of the bodice side seams inside the slip as it has been entirely finished by hand. Lovely handmade lace (may be the something old for this dress as it looks a little more Victorian) can be found at the hem of the slip.

This 1920s drop waisted two piece dress features
-Built in silk slip with box pleats at sides.
-Finely finished French seams.
-Handmade lace at hem.
-Embroidered Bodice and hem with hand done drawn work.
-Silk feather stitching to attach the collar and front to back at shoulder.

Measurements
I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Our model Jennifer's measurements at this photo shoot were 35-27-39 and she stands 5'2" tall.
Slip/Skirt:
-Bust: 38.5"
-Waist: 38"
-Hip: 50" maximum
-Shoulder to waist: 19"
-Length from waist to hem: 32"
-Skirt sweep: 76"
Embroidered Top:
-Bust: 40"
-Shoulder to Shoulder: 18"
-Length: 21"
-Circumference of hem: 44"
This dress has very narrow seam allowances and cannot be altered to a larger size.

Condition
Very Good, especially considering age. Rates a 7 out of 10. While ready to wear, flaws to note include:
-The most wear to the fabric can be found under the arms of the blouse. They are not quite holes, but the threads of the fabric have been separated considerably. This is not noticeable while wearing.
-A loose thread here and there.
-There are several very small holes in the organza skirt.
-This two piece dress is most likely discolored throughout, but it is so even and this dress is so old and delicate that I decided not to take the risk with the weight of water while washing. I also think it can be appreciated for it's creamy antiquated shade.
