This gorgeous vintage dress is a wonderful example of late Victorian / early Prohibition Era fashion!

The fabric is soft, supple silk crepe, the color of heavy cream. It is accented by hundreds of hours worth of tone-on-tone embroidery. I believe the floss used in the embroidery is silk, also.

Cut in the characteristic rectangular shape, This dress is cut fairly straight from shoulder to hem. The dropped waist features a tie belt which can be tightened to fit the wearer's body.

Note the angled sleeves and sailor collar. The large embroidery pattern on the front of the skirt is echoed on the back as well. The center front of the bodice is accented by a strip of lace with a row of faceted glass jet black buttons.

Very good condition. Fabric is still strong and the dress could be worn with care. There are a number of minor flaws with this dress and I will do my best to list them all: There is a quarter-sized mend in the center front of the skirt and a dime-sized stain above this stain and to the left in the last picture. There is another similar stain on the right sleeve and some underarm discoloration under each arm. I noticed a similar spot on the back of the skirt, center right side. There is a 1/2" tear in the fabric at the top back of the bodice, which is hidden under the collar.

I did not pin this dress onto my small sized form, but rather just cinched in the belt. The bust on the dress measures 44". Dropped waist measurement, taken at the belt is 38". Total length from shoulder to hem is 43".

I have been wearing, collecting, and selling vintage clothing for years and fully guarantee this dress is as I described.
