Black 1920s Dress With Embroidery and Asymmetrical Hemline - Bust 86 cm
Fabulous flapper party dress - This dress has cap sleeves edged with georgette which tie at the shoulder. The V shaped yoke has a high neck, is ecru cotton lace and is backed by ecru georgette. The bodice is decorated front and back with embroidered flowers in rainbow colors worked in chain stitch. The skirt falls from over the hips exposing an under skirt at the front and has an asymmetric hem which is longer at the back. There is a silk slip attached inside below the yoke. There are no tags - late 1920s.

Very good. There is slight staining at the underarms, not noticeable. A series of fade marks at the back of the hem and some smaller white marks - most are lost in the folds while being worn, see photos. The attached slip is badly torn at the underarms, see photos. None of these faults are noticeable while the dress is being worn. As with all dresses of this age, care needs to be taken while being worn.
