Circa 1920's Sapphire Blue Velvet and Tea Tone Lace Dress

Spectacular dress from the 1920s and in great, wearable condition!
Flapper style with dropped waist and flared skirt. Tea-tone lace is backed in matching sheer chiffon. Velvet is unlined. Lace sleeves have a ruffled edge. Asymmetrical half-bow with draped tails. Dress is surprisingly light in weight and would be very comfortable to wear. Interior has bra retainers with snaps to secure your bra strap in place (snaps may not be original).

Measurements:
These are the measurement of the garment, not the body it would fit. Please use a tape measure to take your measurements and compare. There are no opening to the dress; it slips over the head so please take that into account in determining fit.

Bust - 38"
Waist -38"
Hips - 40"
Shoulder Span - 14"
Sleeve Length - approx 8.5-9"
Armcyes - 14" (make sure this will fit)
Shoulder to Hem - 45"
Hem Circumference- 92"

Condition:
Excellent condition for a garment of this era. A few minor mentionables which do not affect the wearability. Some areas on seams look hand-stitched or hand-reinforced. Some scattered teeny pinholes in the skirt, unseen when wearing, particularly if you wear a dark slip beneath. We only found them by holding the fabric up to the light. Chiffon lining has a couple of tiny holes in it, unseen from the exterior. Velvet has some "rubbed" areas, typical of vintage velvet as can be seen in photos. Nothing that detracts at all. Last photo is lightened so you can see this. Beautiful dress in a wearable size in excellent condition!
