a true vintage Charleston Era silk flapper dress in black with champagne panels. low-cut neckline framed by two wide panels of champagne colored silk that form the sleeve edges and end in points near the "true waist" of the dress. these strips begin with straight edges and end in front with diagonal cuts like they are two giant ribbons resting on the shoulders. the panels are true inlays, they are not sewn on top of the black silk. when turned inside out, the dress looks the same.

there is a slit in the front of the dress that goes all the way to the top of the champagne hem. functioning silk-covered buttons close the slit at the top (3 are missing) and the black bottom part hangs open. fringe is all glass-beaded, black for 5 inches and then gold beads for another 2" making the fringe hang 7 inches long. some of the fringe is missing (it's delicate) but it is at least missing somewhat evenly around the hemline of the dress. you could add more to make it fuller.

I have many more detail photos of the dress including a close-up of a small rub type tear (not a split tear) in the dress in the upper left sleeve edge visible in the second photo. the last photo shows a detail of the backside of the dress where there is some kind of blue stain that looks like a fingerprint smudge and smear (interesting story there?).

this is THE iconic jazz age flapper dress. it's short (32" minus the fringe!), classy, very sexy and it's REALLY from the 20's.
